About the MRO Market:
Canada is the fifth largest aerospace producer in the world. An important factor for this success is the dynamism of the MRO sector. 1,100 certified Aircraft Maintenance Organizations (AMO) in Canada, with a comprehensive range of capabilities generate more than $3 billion in annual revenues and employ some 17,000 highly skilled workers. Moreover, this sector representing 27% of total Canadian aerospace activities has been experiencing much stronger growth for the last ten years than aerospace manufacturing (37% vs. 29%).
