Air Canada Recognized as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers in Inaugural Forbes Rankings

Air Canada has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers by Forbes in the American financial magazine’s inaugural ranking of Canadian companies. According to Forbes, this award demonstrates “excellent leadership and success” and “signifies to potential employees that Air Canada’s brand belongs to the top performers.”

“We are thrilled with this recognition, as we value diversity, equity and inclusion as being paramount to our organization’s success,” said Arielle Meloul-Wechsler, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources Officer and Public Affairs.

“We are committed to fostering an environment that brings together different talents and skills, and, in turn, helping our employees fulfill their purpose and achieve their goals within a diversified, equitable and inclusive work environment. Our various programs and initiatives to promote equal opportunities for everyone and a work environment that enables our employees to feel recognized and respected underscore our enduring commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.”


The Forbes rankings were based on a survey by market research group Statista of more than 10,000 professionals working for businesses with at least 500 employees in Canada to determine “unbiased results, providing reliable insights to identify Canada’s best employers for diversity,” says a release from Air Canada.

Evaluations were based on various criteria including statements on age, gender, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQ2+, general diversity in the current workplace and diversity among top executives/board.

Earlier this year, Air Canada was named to the Forbes list of “Canada’s Best Employers 2022”.
