Message from the President


Dear members, dear partners,

In a few days, on Sunday, September 26, we will close the nomination process for the Gilles Demers Awards, which recognize the leadership and excellence of Québec’s aerospace SMEs.

In this period of recovery, we have redesigned the competition to adapt it to our new reality. The nomination process has been simplified and personalized support has been offered to all companies wishing to participate.

More than ever, we want to raise the profile of our Québec SMEs and promote their leadership in creating wealth and influence. We feel it is important to highlight their commitment to innovation, business development and internationalization.

If you have not yet submitted your nomination, I invite you to take a few minutes to do so to our jury of experts. The visibility offered by this competition is invaluable to position your company as a leader in the Québec aerospace industry. Don’t miss this great opportunity!

Finally, if you would like to learn more about the 2021 Gilles Demers Awards or to be guided through the application process, I invite you to contact Anouk Wawrzyniak, Director, Growth (; 514 987-9338).

Let’s continue our efforts to promote Québec’s aerospace expertise!
