Montreal's Aerospace Industry

Montreal is the world’s 4th largest centre of aerospace manufacturing and is the only area in the world where an entire aircraft can be assembled from locally manufactured components. Aerospace is Quebec’s leading export industry (over $10B in annual shipments).

One of the unique features of the Montreal Aerospace Industry is that, in contrast to the other centers, it does not depend on only one industry, but also on world-class original equipment manufacturers, each in a different field of activities: All are part of the Montreal cluster, as well as a large number of medium and small companies (over 150 in total), employing over 35 000 people.
