Deborah Flint takes part in fireside chat with Tamara Vrooman, CEO of YVR

Earlier today, our President and CEO, Deborah Flint, took part in a fireside chat with Tamara Vrooman, CEO of Vancouver Airport Authority, at the Public Policy Forum’s Canada Growth Summit. The chat, moderated by The Globe and Mail’s Konrad Yakabuski, focused on how airports can rebuild following the pandemic, and in doing so help to drive economic and social growth.

Ms. Flint took the time to speak about the importance building air capacity to help promote supply chain resilience. She also touched on the GTAA’s work to build a healthier, smarter and greener Toronto Pearson and highlighted the importance of continued partnership with all levels of government across a variety of endeavours, from finding innovative solutions to fund necessary infrastructure projects to building a playbook for the next pandemic.

Ms. Flint also focused on the GTAA’s ambitious environmental commitments, from reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 70% in 2020 versus a 2006 baseline to joining the World Economic Forum’s Clean Skies initiative and becoming an inaugural member of the Canadian Council for Sustainable Aviation Fuels.
