About CCAA

The Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace (CCAA) is dedicated to ensuring the Canadian aviation and aerospace industry has enough workers with the right skills to meet industry needs.

CCAA has two main areas of focus: skills development and industry demographics (supply and demand for skills).

With input from industry across Canada, CCAA provides current Labour Market Information (LMI) for all sub-sectors: MRO, aerospace manufacturing, fixed-wing and rotary transport, airports, and professional pilots.

How CCAA Supports the Industry

CCAA LMI involves and supports stakeholders in key initiatives:

  • National workforce strategy development and implementation based on an annual meeting of key stakeholders
  • Work Integrated Learning wage subsidy for employers
  • Updated, industry-validated national standards for sector-specific occupations
  • Accelerated assessment and certification to qualify candidates trained in other industries or outside Canada
  • Curricula development based on national standards
  • Aviation and aerospace career information and outreach events to assist students, counselors, and workers
  • Training: online and onsite (CARS, Human Factors, PRM, CASO, Quality Auditor, Business and Non-technical Skills) for the Canadian aviation and aerospace industry

As well, CCAA offers:

  • Projects to increase participation of women and indigenous persons
  • CCAA Online Job Magnet – employers can attract candidates with exactly the right skills, job-seekers can target the jobs that they are qualified to

With a first-rate workforce, Canada can meet industry challenges, now and in the future.
