    Description

    We are now accepting applications for Spring and Fall 2019 Air Traffic Controller and Flight Service Specialist training in Montreal.

    A career in Air Traffic Control with NAV CANADA is anything but ordinary. We manage 18 million square kilometres of Canadian and oceanic airspace, and, with 40,000 customers and 3.3 million flights a year, we are one of the largest Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) in the world!

    A career with NAV CANADA is both challenging and rewarding, and no two days on the job are the same. Our Air Traffic Controllers and Flight Service Specialists help pilots keep aircraft safely separated from other aircraft and obstacles, while in flight or on the ground.

    Our Air Traffic Controllers are responsible for coordinating the safe, efficient and orderly flow of air traffic in seven flight information regions, working in Control Towers and Area Control Centres (ACCs) across the country.

    • Area Controllers, often referred to as instrument flight rules (IFR) controllers, are based out of ACCs, each of which is responsible for air traffic in a large section of Canadian airspace. You will train and work out of the ACC located in Montreal.
    • Tower Controllers, also known as visual flight rules (VFR) controllers, have a direct view of the airport and aircraft, and use radio communication to issue instructions and clearances. After completing basic training at the Montreal ACC, you will continue your training and work out of one of the towers in the region.

    Our Flight Service Specialists provide timely, essential information to arriving and departing aircraft at their respective locations, such as traffic advisories, control vehicles on the ground, weather information, flight guidance and airport advisory services.

    • Flight Service Specialists (AAS) provide a wide range of essential information, from helping pilots select a runway to controlling the movement of vehicles on runways and taxiways. Our Flight Service Specialists are located in communities all across the country.
    • Flight Service Specialists (FIC) work in teams at Flight Information Centres that provide flight-planning services and deliver in-depth interpretive weather information and en-route flight information to aircraft operating in Canadian airspace. Our Flight Information Centres are located in Edmonton, Kamloops, Quebec, Winnipeg, Halifax, London, and Whitehorse.

    Interested in becoming an Air Traffic Controller or a Flight Service Specialist? We are looking for the best possible people to take on the responsibility of managing Canada’s airspace. Becoming an Air Traffic Controller or a Flight Service Specialist does not require any prior experience or specialized training – all training is provided by NAV CANADA.

    To apply, you must meet the following basic requirements prior to applying:

    • be 18 years or older,
    • have a high school diploma, or equivalency,
    • be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

    In addition, you must be willing to relocate, and must meet medical requirements, be prepared to undergo a security check, and drug testing, and be available for training in the next 18 months.

    Please note that, to work in the Montreal Flight Information Region, you must also be fluently bilingual—both English and French at an advanced level. Language testing will be administered to selected candidates.

    To make sure we’re hiring top-notch candidates, our recruitment and training processes are rigorous and highly competitive. We will evaluate by different tests, the following qualities:

    • Sharp judgement
    • A clear voice and keen hearing
    • Strong motivation
    • Good memory
    • Excellent problem-solving abilities
