The announcement was made at the inauguration of Bombardier’s new Centre of Excellence in Quebec, a $65mn facility that the firm is investing in, in order to innovate its production operations.

“The Government of Quebec is proud to support Bombardier in strengthening and giving renewed vitality to the local aerospace industry,” said Dominique Anglade, the Deputy Premier and Minister of Economy in Quebec.

“We are delighted that Bombardier’s Centre of Excellence is offering world-class career opportunities to our local workforce. Moreover, its development, and innovation in general, are part of the four areas of intervention around which the Québec Aerospace Strategy 2016-2026 is articulated.”

The additional 1,000 workers will add to Bombardier’s existing employee base that currently stands at 5,500 in the Quebec region alone.
