What will you do today?

As a dynamic team member, you collaborate with your crew to efficiently onload and offload aircraft, ensuring safe and on-time performance. You may find yourself working functions that include baggage, connecting passenger's bags or right out on the tarmac performing a symphony of tasks leading to a successful operation.

What will you find with us?  

  • Wellbeing: Every aspect of your wellbeing and of your family, matters to us. Our benefits go much further than the standard health, dental and pension. We want to give you support across all areas of your lifestyle – from your finances with our annual profit sharing award, to your mental health.  

  • Flexibility: Choose how you’d work with us. Flexible shift patterns become more available as you continue your career with Air Canada. In addition, you will have an opportunity to trade shifts with your colleagues. 

  • Travel: Keen to explore the world? Want to visit family and friends overseas? Our travel privileges give you, your family and your friends special rates so you can fulfill your travel dreams.  

  • Diversity: You’ll find a real mix of people in our ground crew family. Here, you’ll do something different, with someone different, every single shift.  

  • Training: You don’t need airline, airport or aviation experience. Everyone starts with a fully paid, full-time, five to seven week training program. And if you feel you want to take your aviation career in a new direction, we’ll support you with training, development and tuition reimbursement.
