Major airports in Canada are accommodating animal needs with pet relief, hygiene and comfort zones. Listed below are 19 Canadian airports with pet-relief areas, ranging from grassy or gravel areas outside terminals to elaborate indoor facilities.
In 2016 Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in British Columbia established Canada’s first in-terminal pet relief area, giving four-footed passengers a chance to make that always important pre-flight comfort stop. Located post-security in the gate area of YVR’s US Terminal, the facility provides passengers with service or companion dogs, including travelers with reduced mobility, easy access.
Currently, there are three other indoor, post-security animal relief areas: at Calgary International Airport (YYC) in Alberta, located in Concourse B: at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) in Ontario, located in Terminal 1 and Terminal 3; and at Edmonton International Airport (EIA) in Alberta, located in the Domestic/International Departures Lounge.
