ALPA’s Growth Continues: Welcome Pascan Aviation Pilots

Pascan Aviation pilots officially joined ALPA August 17 after the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) announced that it had certified the results of the pilot group’s June 9 card filing. Due to the overwhelming percentage of Pascan pilots who filed cards, the CIRB decided to bypass an election and instead finalized the decision, granting representation rights to ALPA.

“We are excited to add another pilot group and continue toward ALPA’s stated goal of representing all pilots in North America. We are stronger together, and we welcome the pilots of Pascan to our Association,” said Capt. Jason Ambrosi, ALPA president.

“ALPA’s footprint in Canada continues to grow with the addition of Pascan Aviation,” said Capt. Tim Perry, ALPA Canada president, “and they will immediately have the support and experience of ALPA’s pilots, professional negotiators, economists, and the entire ALPA staff. We look forward to working hand in hand to further advance the aviation profession in Canada.”

Established in 1999, Pascan Aviation is based in Montreal, Que., and its fleet includes BAE Jetstream 32s and SAAB 340s. With 50 pilots, the regional airline provides service to 10 destinations in Quebec, Ontario, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Founded in 1931, ALPA is the largest airline pilot union in the world and represents more than 75,000 pilots at 43 U.S. and Canadian airlines. Visit or follow us on Twitter @ALPAPilots.
