Description by Canadian Council for Aviation and Aerospace:

1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST

COVID 19 has been hard on Canada’s aviation and aerospace sector, both in terms of business and the workforce. And with promising vaccines in the works and a year’s worth of experience operating in a pandemic environment, is getting back to business, and starting on the road to recovery a possibility? What will the recovery in the workplace and for the workforce look like? Is the industry ready? Are you?

The CCAA Forum is a free 3-hour event featuring a panel of the Regional Associations (BCAC, Manitoba Aerospace, Ontario Aerospace Council, CAMAQ and ACADA) followed by a panel of the National Associations (AIAC ATAC, HAC, and CBAA). Experts will discuss the impact of the pandemic on Canada’s aviation and aerospace workforce, and what we need to do as an industry to prepare for the recovery from a labour and skills perspective.

National Panel

Robert Donald, CCAA’s Executive Director will moderate a discussion panel that takes a look at the future of the skilled aviation and aerospace workforce in a post-covid world. Panelists include Mike Mueller, Senior Vice President, AIAC; John McKenna, President and CEO, ATAC; Fred Jones, President and CEO, HAC; and Anthony Norejko, President and CEO, CBAA.

Regional Panel

Theresa Davis-Woodhouse, CCAA’s Senior Director of Project Management, moderates this panel on regional perspectives in navigating labour and training challenges beyond Covid.

The panel will share their insights on the effects of the pandemic in the workplace and how companies in their regions are trying to adapt to – and survive – a very challenging situation.

Panelists Carole Lee Reinhardt, President & CEO, Atlantic Canada Aerospace and Defence Association; Heather Bell, Chair, British Columbia Aviation Council; Nathalie Paré, Directrice Générale, Comité sectoriel de main-d’oeuvre en aérospatiale du Québec; Wendell C. Wiebe, Chief Executive Officer, Manitoba Aerospace; and Moira Harvey, Executive Director, Ontario Aerospace Council.
