Share |


Established in 1993, the Ontario Aerospace Council (OAC), a not-for-profit organization, is comprised of more than 200 member companies, representing over 70% of the Ontario aerospace industry employment base and spans all tiers, business activities and sizes. As part of our member community we are pleased to have colleges and universities, as well as companies that do business with the aerospace sector.

Our purpose is to enhance recognition of Ontario’s capabilities as a leader in global aerospace markets and work together to build greater expertise to assure continued growth and prosperity. OAC fosters relationships between all stakeholders: industry, academia, researchers, governments and associations to gather and share industry intelligence, identify and facilitate funding as well as being an active catalyst for industry growth.

Working collectively and collaboratively with our members and in partnership with government (provincial and federal), we define and implement strategic member programs and initiatives in areas including: technology development and adoption, supply chain relationships and readiness, skills development and workplace training. Through a variety of events, we deliver program content and facilitate networking to grow and strengthen our community.

All Ontario companies and organizations involved in and with the aerospace industry in Ontario are invited to be part of this collaborative effort. This includes OEMs, large companies and SMEs in: aircraft manufacturing (Tiers 1–4); UAS/UAVs; maintenance, repair and overhaul; ground-based infrastructure; and space. We also welcome Ontario organizations that do business with the aerospace industry, such as: financial institutions, colleges, universities, research centres and consultants (engineering, business services, marketing, electronic commerce and insurance).
