CANADIAN FOOTPRINT

Safran has operated in Canada for over 70 years and is a major local player in its core markets. Over the years we have expanded our scope of business in Canada, enabling us to further cement ties with our customers in North America, including aircraft and helicopter manufacturers, airlines and armed forces. Safran now has more than 2,400 employees (including Zodiac Aerospace) in Canada in four incorporated divisions.
