Business at YCD

The Nanaimo Airport provides opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs, from land for development to leasing of retail space in our expanding Air Terminal Building to in-terminal advertising.

We are in the heart of the new Foreign Trade Zone, which gives business easier access to government programs supporting importers and exporters.
