As a long-standing partner of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, Air Canada is proud of being a Pillar Sponsor and continuing to develop this successful cooperation. Headquartered in Montréal, Air Canada is one of the city's largest employers and plays a strategic role in Montréal's economic development.
Before the pandemic hit the air transport industry, Air Canada was leading broad international expansion efforts, and Montréal had become a strategic pillar of that unprecedented growth. Some 34 new international routes were added between 2012 and 2020, connecting our city directly to major international cities, such as Shanghai, Tokyo, Mexico City and Houston. In spite of the challenges the industry is currently facing, we intend to resume our position on the world stage and to continue making our metropolis shine. Our international network opens Montréal to the world and represents an important economic development tool for businesses that share our vision of becoming global leaders.
Our significant investments in aeronautics, equipment and other services also contribute to making Montréal a world-class aerospace industry hub, in addition to reinforcing our city's status as the world capital of civil aviation, hosting the headquarters of the ICAO and international organizations such as the IATA.
Through our increased collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, Air Canada is committed to maintaining its contribution toward Montréal's economic growth.
