NAV CANADA releases its first Corporate Social Responsibility Report

(Ottawa, March 7, 2018) – NAV CANADA today released its inaugural Corporate Social Responsibility Report. The report replaces the Collaborative Initiatives for Emissions Reductions (CIFER) report that NAV CANADA began issuing in 2009, and takes a broader view by focusing on actions taken in four areas: safety, environmental stewardship, economic impact and people.

“Our focus on safety and operational efficiency has not wavered,” said Neil Wilson, President & CEO. “ But our commitments to stakeholders go well beyond these two elements.

“Not only does NAV CANADA manage one of the safest air navigation systems in the world, we also look for ways to benefit people, communities and our planet. I thank our people for their achievements that make our 2017 Corporate Social Responsibility Report a source of pride for us all,” said Wilson.

 Some of the information found in the Report for 2017 includes:

  •  Initiatives that have helped reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by more than 1.5 million tonnes.
  • Key safety benchmarks that have helped  make NAV CANADA among the world’s safest air navigation service providers.
  • Programs focused on employees that have helped make NAV CANADA one of Canada’s Top Employers.

​NAV CANADA is a private, not-for-profit company, established in 1996, providing air traffic control, airport advisory services, weather briefings and aeronautical information services for more than 18 million square kilometres of Canadian domestic and international airspace.

The Company is internationally recognized for its safety record, and technology innovation. Air traffic management systems developed by NAV CANADA are used by air navigation service providers in countries worldwide. 

NAV CANADA is a partner in Aireon LLC, an international joint venture deploying a space based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system that will expand air traffic surveillance to all regions of the globe.
