Ontario Aerospace:

Our Heritage, Our Sector and Future-Proofing Your Career

Course description

This course presents an overview of specific notable achievements in Ontario’s aerospace heritage and the key individuals that made them happen. You’ll also learn about the industry’s present-day structure, capabilities, technologies and economic impact, including the wide range of products currently being produced, and aircraft that contain Ontario-made parts and components.
