Postponement of Spring Event

Dear ATAC Members and Stakeholder Friends, 

I wish to inform you that ATAC is postponing its Spring Event / Aviation Day-on-the-Hill until the Fall. Current circumstances make it very unlikely that social gatherings of any kind will be wise, or even legal, in early May. We should be able to send you information of a new Fall date by the end of May. 

Rest assured that ATAC is currently working relentlessly to help its Members in these very troubling times and lobbying the Government to table a significant and equitable financial aid program. Please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to be of service to you.

ATAC Financial Aid Letter to Government

The Air Transport Association of Canada, representing 75 air operators across Canada and some 85 industry support stakeholders, is asking for the Government to act immediately to table a financial aid package for the commercial aviation industry.

Canada is lagging behind as some foreign governments have already acted in coming to the aid of their aviation industry, including the USA, Australia, Brazil, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Spain and Sweden.

However, where the impact will most be felt is for those who have been laid off, or who are self-employed or contract workers reeling from the dramatic shutdown of businesses large and small over the last month.
