Edmonton International Airport has redesigned the consumer experience with its newly created Indigenous Interpretive and Retail Centre. The grand opening of the centre was held Nov. 8.
The project began about eight years ago when management at the facility began brainstorming ways they could include and celebrate Indigenous culture while educating its passengers.
“It’s something that has been in the works here at the airport for quite a long time,” explained Chelsey Quirk, manager of Indigenous and stakeholder relations at the airport. “We spent a lot of time conceptualizing what we wanted, what we thought would be a good idea, where in the terminal it would be and what was the outcome we were looking for.”
