Prepare to be equipped with the tools for success in your career aspirations. Attending this conference will provide key resources to give you command over your professional career in this industry. Why the Canadian Women in Aviation Conference? Traditionally women have comprised less then 5% of Canada’s aviation workforce. The Canadian Women in Aviation conference was developed to bring these women together as a network of support. To provide a friendly environment where women who have made it to the top of their careers are eager to share their experiences with women who are looking to follow their path, whether it be in the military or in the civilian aviation industry. Learn from the knowledge these pioneers have gained, you will be inspired by their stories.

In addition to supporting those already in the industry, the Canadian Women in Aviation Conference also encourages more young women to pursue aviation related careers. Therefore, a scholarship for student registration is being offered for an Aviation College / University student or Air Cadet to attend the 2013 conference sessions and activities. The scholarship application is available on the CWIA website.

Join participants from all facets of the industry including Canadian Forces, NavCanada, Transport Canada, Airlines, Manufacturers, Transportation Safety Board, Airport Operators, General Aviation and many others at the 12th Biennial CWIA Conference June 19 – 22 at the Novotel Toronto Mississauga Centre. Planned speakers will inspire, motivate, educate and entertain you, thereby ultimately preparing you to reach your aviation goals. There will also be many networking opportunities during social activities and aviation tours. A Gala dinner will conclude the event.
