Accessible Transportation for Persons with Disabilities Regulations
We’re committed to being a barrier-free, inclusive airport for people of all ages and abilities. That’s why we’re getting extra help to meet the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA)’s regulations. In June this year, the CTA audited all our channels, services and amenities and will be doing so annually on selected obligations within the regulation.
To meet and exceed regulatory compliance for accessible transportation at YYC, Terminal Operations is excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Changing Paces, a disability awareness training firm from Ontario. Their team of experts will provide refresher training to staff or volunteers who interact with the travelling public.
- YYC Crew
- Customer Care Ambassadors
- White Hat Volunteers
- Ground Transportation service providers
- ASP Security Services terminal patrollers
To customize and target the training to YYC’s guest, Changing Paces surveyed our accessible communities, local accessible service organizations and guests who have experienced YYC’s accessible services.
- Aug.- Sept.: Use survey feedback to create workshop content
- Beginning of Oct.: Send out workshop dates
- Mid October: Deliver in-person and e-learning training through Dayforce and on teamyyc.com

Watch the HUB for more updates in the September and October so we can all understand the needs of our guests with disabilities better together.
