MIRABEL — To support the ramp-up of its A220 commercial aircraft production and to meet opportunities in the helicopters and defence, and space fields, Airbus plans to recruit over 800 new employees in Canada in 2023, including approximately 500 for the creation of new positions, reflecting the growth of its operations in Canada.

“Airbus continues to have great ambitions for Canada. After recruiting more than 800 new employees and creating more than 400 positions for the A220 in Mirabel in 2022, we are pleased to announce that we will hire more than 800 additional employees across the country in 2023 – including approximately 700 in Quebec,” said Benoît Schultz, President and CEO of Airbus Canada.

Airbus’s recruitment needs in Canada range from helicopters to defence, space to commercial aircraft – from sub-component assembly to flight operations – and include production and quality, engineering, IT and customer service. Two-thirds of the workforce will be in support functions, while one-third will be in production.

“I call on those who want to make sustainable aerospace a reality to join our team. In 2023, we aim to allocate one-third of our positions to young graduates and early-career professionals and maintain our goal to have 33 per cent of new hires and promotions allocated to women, supporting our commitment to being an inclusive employer and contributing to diversity within our industry,” said Benoît Schultz, President and CEO, Airbus Canada.


Airbus was recently awarded the “Top Employers” certification in Canada by the Top Employers Institute. Airbus Canada will also maintain its university scholarship program worth $200,000 in various Quebec institutions until 2024.
