Headquartered in Chicago, Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and the leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems. A top U.S. exporter, the company supports airlines and government customers in 150 countries. Boeing products and tailored services include commercial and military aircraft, satellites, weapons, electronic and defense systems, launch systems, advanced information and communication systems, and performance-based logistics and training.

Boeing employs more than 160,000 people in more than 65 countries. In Canada, Boeing employs 2,000 highly skilled workers at Boeing Winnipeg; AeroInfo Systems, Richmond; Jeppesen, Montreal; C-17 field service support, Trenton; Boeing Commercial Aircraft field service offices, Montreal, Toronto, and Calgary; Medium-to-Heavy-Lift Helicopter (MHLH) field service support, Petawawa; MHLH parts warehouse, Renfrew; Business Development and the MHLH program office, Ottawa; and five Aviall Customer Service Centers. Boeing Winnipeg is one of the largest aerospace composite manufacturers in Canada and produces nearly 1,000 end-item composite parts and assemblies.

Canada is also home to one of Boeing’s largest supplier bases, with more than 200 major suppliers and more than 600 suppliers total across the country.

Canadian partners provide aerospace parts for Boeing defence aircraft models including the V-22 and Chinook rotorcraft, the T-45 training aircraft, the F-15 and F/A-18 fighters, the P-8A maritime patrol aircraft, the C-17 Globemaster III strategic airlift aircraft, and aircraft trainers, as well as for many commercial aircraft models. Combined with the Boeing facilities, this supply network contributes approximately $1 billion in economic benefits annually to the Canadian economy. Boeing has a major role in the ongoing transformation of the Canadian Forces by modernizing 77 of Canada’s CF-18 fighter jets with a two-phase avionics upgrade program. Boeing also provides the Canadian Navy’s all-weather Harpoon missiles, and supply chain services to fleet support programs. In addition, the Canadian Department of National Defence procured five C-17 Globemaster III aircraft to modernize its defence forces airlift fleet and 15 Boeing CH-47F Chinooks to meet Canada’s current and future domestic and international missions requiring medium-to-heavy-lift helicopters.
