Edmonton International Airport (YEG)
Edmonton International Airport (YEG) is a self-funded, not-for-profit corporation driving economic prosperity for the Edmonton Metropolitan Region and beyond. YEG is Canada’s fifth-busiest airport by passenger traffic and the largest major Canadian airport by land area, generating an economic output of over $3.2 billion and supporting over 26,000 jobs prepandemic. YEG is home to the Airport City Sustainability Campus, an integrated ecosystem of companies driving innovation. The Campus has attracted more than $1.5 billion of private investment over the past decade. From sustainability initiatives such as being the first airport in the world to sign The Climate Pledge to being the first in Canada to begin regularly scheduled drone delivery operations, YEG is a global leader greening the future of the aviation industry.
We are dedicated to equity, diversity, and inclusion (DEI) by striving to be an airport for everyone. As part of our commitment to community and DEI leadership, we proudly acknowledge the ancestral and traditional Territory of Treaty Six and the Métis homeland. Treaty Six is the gathering place and travelling route of the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Métis, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. We thoughtfully acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries, and whose voices are so important in paving a path forward together in reconciliation.
To do this in a way that aligns to our values, supports the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation’s Calls for Actions, and strengthens our community, we have committed to being an active partner and contributor in economic reconciliation. This means that we commit to listening to and learning from our Indigenous community, creating meaningful partnerships and opportunities based on shared values and objectives, and working together toward meaningful economic prosperity that will ensure the success of future generations.
