A solid foundation

CRIAQ’s success depends on the support of a handful of essential stakeholders, including a key partner, the Government of Quebec, which has supported CRIAQ’s mission since its inception.

CRIAQ’s success is also due to the strong commitment of the aerospace industry and the academic community. Thanks to the work of the directors and representatives of the Board of Directors, CRIAQ adapts to the evolution of the industry in order to meet concrete current needs.
