Manitoba Aerospace Pillars

The Manitoba aerospace industry’s strategic plan identifies four key focus areas to grow the industry and ensure its competiveness in the global marketplace.

These strategic goals are the pillars that support the industry’s vison of delivering aerospace products and value-added services through world-class companies and partners.

Each pillar is supported by a steering committee with representatives from the local Manitoba aerospace industry


Workforce Development

Manitoba Aerospace ensures the education and training system works with industry to develop a skilled workforce, provides access to custom training so industry can remain competitive, and works with youth, parents, the Indigenous community and newcomers to Canada to ensure a steady supply of students and workers into aerospace careers.


Supplier and Cluster Development

With a strong commitment to Small to Medium sized Businesses (SMB) and an internationally recognised supplier development program, Manitoba Aerospace helps build the local and regional supply base, prepare suppliers to work with OEMs, and Tier 1 and Tier 2 organizations, and supports improved access to global markets.


Innovation, Research & Technology

To maintain a leadership position in manufacturing and MR&O and share in the rising market demand for new aircraft, space systems and aircraft servicing over the next 20 years, Manitoba companies must be increasingly successful in the fiercely competitive global supply chain.


Promotion, Branding and Advocacy

Manitoba Aerospace is the voice for Manitoba’s aerospace industry, promoting aerospace as a strategic industry and ensuring Manitoba companies are present and highly visible on the world stage.
