Québecs aerospace sector is recognized around the world for the quality of its highly-skilled workforce. An aging population and a significant decline in the number of available workers are major challenges facing our industry.  

The mandate of this working group is to ensure the planning, coordination and implementation of a concerted action plan to address significant succession and aerospace workforce challenges and, ultimately, to increase industry competitiveness. (Created in 2008) 



  • To attract young people to the aerospace industry. 
  • To implement the recommendations of the various white papers produced by the working group (4.0 skills) 
  • To foster the intergenerational transfer of knowledge. 
  • To ensure greater harmonization and complementarity with industry partner organizations. 


Key projects: 


Working Group Committees 

  • Heritage CommitteeDetermined to meet the challenge of intergenerational transfer of knowledge, companies in the cluster − Bombardier, Héroux-Devtek, JMJ Aéronautique and Pratt & Whitney Canada, in collaboration avec Emploi-Québec – have joined forces with a team from HEC MosaiC as part of the Heritage project.
