Until the COVID-19 pandemic, air navigation professionals at NAV CANADA ensured the safety of more than 3 million flights every year. Unfortunately, the company has been forced to begin layoffs in the face of major revenue declines.
Canada’s air travel and tourism industries are depending on NAV CANADA to ensure aviation safety in the post-pandemic recovery. We can’t afford to lose the expertise that has kept our skies safe.
We are urging the government to take immediate and decisive action to support NAV CANADA through this crisis by providing it with sufficient emergency funding.
Transport minister Marc Garneau must step in to ensure that NAV CANADA is sufficiently staffed to operate navigation systems and air traffic control.
Join us and take action now to make our demands clear.
