The strength of a qualified and diversified talent pool is a powerful performance lever for the Canadian aerospace industry, which contributed more than $24 billion to GDP in 2021. Yet, according to the survey results, limited access to skilled workers is the biggest challenge facing employers today. Nearly 38% of respondents reported difficulty recruiting.
Knowing that this pool of talent could be strengthened by promoting DEI, Aéro Montréal decided to work with EY Canada to develop a report on practices in the sector. The study, which is a powerful working and reference tool, proposes concrete recommendations to support change in organizations and encourages the implementation of evaluation parameters for the efforts made.
