Countdown to CASW

Led by the Canadian Airports Council, Canadian Airports Safety Week (CASW) sees airports across Canada host a full week of engaging activities designed to reinforce safe work practices among airport employees. 

We encourage you to mark the dates in your calendars and participate to show your commitment to keeping YYC, our employees, partners, and guests, safe.

Our goal is to educate and engage our airport community to strengthen safety-minded behaviours with initiatives throughout the week and continue improving our safety culture beyond CASW. Participate in activities throughout the week to reinforce your knowledge of safety practices and recommit to our guiding principle, “See Something. Say Something.”


Check out the events taking place at YYC from Sept. 18-22 in honour of CASW 2023 – make sure you attend and participate for the chance to win some prizes, courtesy of our airport partners!
