While Bombardier Aerospace is a global company, respect for and the application of francization measures depend upon the commitment of all of our employees who work in Québec.

“PUMA Canada, in partnership with the Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l'Île and the Board of Trade of Metropolitan Montreal, is pleased to offer its employees an incredible gift: the French language. This is a marvelous way for us to thank them for their tireless efforts and dedication, while guaranteeing them a future in business and enriching their lives.”

Nancy Erickson, Human Resources Administrator, Puma Canada

“This program is a wonderful initiative. The participants greatly appreciate this opportunity to further their knowledge of French, during work hours. Moreover, given that the classes take place over a period of several months, they appreciated the close bond they developed with the instructor. They now feel that they are better equipped to communicate in both spoken and written French. Bravo and thank you for having helped us contribute to developing the skills of our human capital!”

Emmanuelle Lemay, Advisor, Human Resources, Dale Parizeau Morris Mackenzie

“These classes have led to improved communication, both socially and commercially, as well as better interaction between allophone immigrant employees and Francophones. This has also resulted in better communication with our subsidiary in France. Certain job requirements have also been changed to include the use of French in several job positions. The classes have also allowed several professional employees to prepare for Office québécois de la langue française exams required for them to join their respective professional orders. All of this is thanks to the French in the Workplace classes!”

Ian Hadida, Director, Human Resources, SCP SCIENCE
