Many companies in Québecs aerospace cluster work in MRO (maintaining operational capacity). They have common challenges and no forum to collaborate and share their expertise. 


This working group’s mandate is to promote the excellence of Québecs MRO sector worldwide through concerted initiatives led by players with cutting-edge expertise. (Created in 2019) 


Working Group Objectives: 

  • To ensure the sustainability and expansion of the MRO sector in order to strengthen its position as an international player in an increasingly competitive market. 
  • To enhance the attractiveness of the MRO sector 
  • To strengthen the strategic positioning and competitiveness of Québec companies in the sector 
  • To work to ensure that regulation is not a drag on the sector's growth
