    Victoria International Airport Economic Impact Study

    A critical factor in earning support for future initiatives that benefit all airport-related businesses is our ability to demonstrate the significant economic impact of Victoria International Airport (YYJ) upon our community and province.

    The Victoria Airport Authority has commissioned an economic impact study. The results of the study will be used to raise public awareness of the airport, the airlines and other related businesses’ contribution to local employment and economic activity. We receive many requests for economic impact information, and it is important that the public continues to appreciate the benefits of the Victoria International Airport to the economy of British Columbia. InterVISTAS has conducted similar economic impact research for airports across Canada.

    In order to undertake this study, we kindly ask that you participate in a survey. In order to keep this initiative on time and on budget, we request that you complete this survey as soon as possible, so that InterVISTAS can compile the results without delay or additional cost.

    Should you have any questions about the study or the survey, please contact Doris Mak or Celina Estrella at 1-877-717-6246.

    We appreciate that some of the information requested in the survey may be of a sensitive nature to your firm. Please be assured that InterVISTAS will maintain the confidentiality of your survey response, and that the completed surveys will not be viewed by any other party other than researchers at InterVISTAS. InterVISTAS will maintain the confidentiality of your survey response and will not provide individual firm results to Victoria International Airport. Only the aggregate survey totals will be provided in the final report. The published document will not reveal employment figures or other data for any individual firm.

    Thank you for your cooperation in this important study. We all look forward to the results as they will benefit all members of the Victoria International Airport business community.
