This will help operators to reduce their fuel consumption and emissions, decreasing the impact of air travel on the environment. New manufacturing processes will also help to reduce waste and increase efficiency. P&WC is investing $139.2 million in the project, with Ontario providing a grant of $13.9 million. Ontario's aerospace industry employs 22,000 people and generates annual sales of approximately $6.5 billion.For more information, visit www.ontario.ca or www.pwc.ca.
