As a long-standing partner of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, Air Canada is proud of being a pillar 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 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.

With over a century of achievements, AtkinsRéalis, formerly SNC-Lavalin, is a company with deep roots in Montréal and recognized for its excellence and ingenuity in the field of engineering.

In recent years, we have deliberately repositioned the company. We have withdrawn from activities that were not profitable or aligned with our strategy; we have resolved fundamental issues; we have redoubled our efforts in high-growth global markets; we have embarked on our digital transformation; and, most importantly, we redefined our purpose and strengthened our culture. We've reached an inflection point, and it's time for us to embrace the AtkinsRéalis brand and embark on the bright future that lies ahead.

The AtkinsRéalis name combines Atkins, a historic brand firmly established in all the company's international markets, and “Réalis”, inspired by the city of Montréal and highlighting the company's Quebec roots. In addition, “Réalis” evokes the verb “to realize” or “to make possible”, perfectly denoting our focus on results and the realization of our projects.

This transformation is an important milestone, uniting five renowned companies under one umbrella. What's more, it combines the expertise of our 36,000 employees working in various markets with our ability to offer integrated solutions to our customers and partners, and with our purpose to engineer a better future for our planet and its people.

AtkinsRéalis is a long-standing partner of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal. We are pleased to once again be one of its pillars, supporting the Chamber in its mission to be the voice of Montréal's business community. We are also delighted to bring our expertise to projects that promote the long-term growth and prosperity of the metropolis.
