PARIS — On Apr. 12, Sopra Steria announced its establishment in Canada. Sopra Steria aims to better support the needs of its aerospace clients already established there by expanding the presence of its Aeroline vertical teams.

“The establishment of a Sopra Steria subsidiary in Canada marks a significant milestone in the development of our Aeroline vertical. Already a market leader in Europe, we support globally renowned industrial players. To be closer to their operations, we are now establishing ourselves in Canada,” comments Youssoupha Diop, head of Sopra Steria’s Aeroline activities in Canada.

Sopra Steria’s presence through its Aeroline vertical is organised around two locations in Montreal and Toronto. This is complemented by the presence of CS Group, a Sopra Steria subsidiary specialised in critical systems management including aerospace, located in Ville Saint-Laurent in Canada and East Hartford in the United States.

The Canadian Aeroline teams are already collaborating with CS Group Canada and Sopra Steria’s Infrastructures & Security Services (I2S) vertical teams. They can also leverage the company’s capabilities in Europe and India.


Sopra Steria’s Aeroline vertical is a comprehensive range of digital services to support the digitalisation needs of engineering, manufacturing, service and maintenance activities, and air traffic management.

Within 5 years, Sopra Steria aims to have a workforce of 500 employees in Canada.

“We were eager to begin this new phase of our journey. This expansion into Canada directly meets the proximity needs of our clients and our strategy. As this territory is key in aerospace, it was essential for us to be represented here,” comments Xavier Pecquet, Member of the Executive Committee and head of Sopra Steria’s Aeroline vertical.
