AMFA’s mission is to increase recognition of aircraft engineers (AMEs) and related skill trade groups. Our goal is to promote and protect our partnering interests through the relationships we develop within the Canadian Government. One of the integral ways we accomplish this is to represent the trade before Parliament, the House of Commons, and the Senate through precise, targeted, and proven methods. With our focus on government affairs, AMFA is actively engaged in the issues affecting your trade as AMEs, including job security and workforce development, workforce shortages, and increased skill recognition. There has been much discussion recently regarding the impending shortage of licensed AMEs. AMFA is at the forefront of the workforce development discussion and working with other stakeholders to address the issue.
We believe that government affairs consist of three pillars: legislative, regulatory, and political. On the legislative front, AMFA is both monitoring legislation that may have an impact on our profession, and working with Parliament to introduce trade-friendly legislation. On the regulatory front, and as the only craft-trade-specific labor group in Canada representing aircraft engineers, AMFA strives to ensure our voice is heard, by sitting at the table, at the highest levels of government and the aviation industry. We actively engage with regulators by participating on any advisory or rulemaking committees that are put forward by Transport Canada, where stakeholders gather to discuss and advise regulators on the most important issues facing the aviation industry.
