Vision – We envision Vancouver Island home to a thriving global aerospace sector.

Mission – To promote Vancouver Island as a talent hub to the global aerospace market. Over the next 10 years VIAA will foster investment in Vancouver Island by the global aerospace community.

First through R&D investment in consortiums, second by developing suppliers on the island, and finally by moving infrastructure and capabilities here.

VIAA will specifically promote Vancouver Islands:

  • Local talent (companies and individuals)
  • Universities and Colleges (access to new talent & R&D)
  • Infrastructure (Airports and economic regions)
  • Prime location and lifestyle, attractive to talent.

Why should organizations, companies and individuals be members:

  • To be included in promotional initiatives
  • To meet other industry players (networking)
  • To align capabilities with consortiums
  • To be involved when Aerospace representatives visit to the island
