MONTREAL —The Montreal Science Centre held its fifth edition of Vitrines, an aerospace employment and training event on Saturday May 7, 2022.

The government of Quebec provided financial support to make this event possible, which Montreal’s Science Centre hosted in-person for the first time in two years and brought together businesses, schools and training centres in the sector.

The event is designed to help novices find career, internship and training opportunities.

At the fifth edition of Vitrines, the province’s aerospace cluster took the opportunity to introduce the knowledge transfer initiative to promote internal company knowledge to help mitigate workforce challenges.

“I am proud that our government is supporting the event. Indeed, the aerospace industry is essential and a pillar of Québec’s international outreach. In this field also, businesses must open their doors to all talents: only by focusing on the integration of all available people will the aerospace industry succeed and keep its momentum,” said Jean Boulet, Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Solidarity, Minister of Immigration, Francization and Integration and Minister responsible for the Mauricie region in a statement.

Aéro Montréal says that as the population ages, there is increasing pressure on the industrial sector.  Increasing retirements and workforce shortages in the industry prompted the think tank to quickly propose concrete solutions like the knowledge transfer initiative to support businesses.
