Who We Are

Who We Are

Elevate Aviation is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2015 in Edmonton, Alberta. 

With programs all across Canada we are creating a shift in the aviation industry.

After conducting significant research from a variety of demographics across Canada, we learned that the largest barrier to female entry into aviation was simply lack of awareness. How can something so simple have caused the massive gender gap in aviation? This gap not only denies women options for economic security, but it has also been identified as a cause of an industry wide shortage Canada is facing.

So, what are we doing about it? We introduce women and youth to careers in aviation through our many programs including tours, speaking engagements, mentorship, webinars, and our Elevate Aviation Learning Centre. We partner with Canada’s leaders in aviation to promote their companies, unique careers, and the industry as a whole. Each and every one of our programs are targeted at moving the needle in the industry.
