The Air Canada Pilots Association represents the largest single group of professional airline pilots in Canada. With about 3,600 members who fly passengers and cargo around the world on Air Canada and Air Canada rouge, ACPA serves a diverse and engaged membership via its headquarters near Toronto Pearson International Airport, and through regional representatives across pilot bases in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver.

The primary mission of every ACPA pilot — every single day — is the safety and security of passengers, crew members, aircraft and the public. The Air Canada Pilots Association is a leader in advocating for safety and security for our members in the aviation community. We monitor developments around the world, and pursue improvements and enhancements wherever appropriate or necessary. Having chosen to pursue a career in such a highly specialized and technical arena, ACPA members constantly seek to improve our profession, working conditions, compensation and benefits — not just on behalf of our own member pilots, but also in support of our chosen profession.

In our Newsroom, we’ve gathered ACPA’s news releases and links to media coverage in which our spokespeople appear.

We also share our views on critical industry and aviation issues to government, regulatory authorities, international and domestic aviation and aerospace organizations, airport authorities, fellow trade unions and the media. You can find more detailed information about ACPA’s position on these issues on our Advocacy pages.
