Pride

Promoting diversity and inclusion is not only the right thing to do, it is also essential for any organization that wants to attract and retain the best available talent. — Calin Rovinescu, Chief Executive Officer, Air Canada

As a strong supporter of diversity & inclusion in our workplace and community, Air Canada is helping to create a welcoming world. Our longstanding affinity with the LGBTQ community includes sponsorship of Pride celebrations across Canada, being named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers, and promoting LGBTQ-themed programming on our inflight entertainment system and in Air Canada enRoute, our inflight magazine.

We are proud to celebrate alongside the LGBTQ community in Canada and around the world during Pride celebrations and throughout the year.

Our Community

At Air Canada, we believe that it is by fully participating in the communities we serve that our airline truly thrives. We strive to foster dynamic, healthy and financially strong communities for our employees, stakeholders and customers as we believe that our growth and strength as a company parallels that of our communities.

Since we can’t do this alone, we partner with key organizations in Canada that help us bring our LGBTQ communities together to celebrate diversity, support people co-existing with HIV/AIDS and welcome newcomers to the community. It is also important for us to invest in LGBTQ education and research as well as the arts and culture that represent the best expression of our communities.

How we support our community

Our Employees

Air Canada has been rated one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employersfor the last three years and is proud to provide a work environment where all employees feel respected and recognized. Our history as an LGBTQ-friendly employer is longstanding. We were well ahead of the curve in providing same-sex benefits to our employees and we see diversity and inclusivity as a strength, reflecting the diversity of our customer base.

Our LGBTQ employees know that at Air Canada, we want them to feel safe and welcomed when they bring their authentic selves to work. That’s why they can often be found proudly displaying our corporate colours and the Air Canada Rondelle at Pride events supported by Air Canada across the country.
