Bombardier to build new aerospace plant in Mississauga
BOMBARDIER — Bombardier’s new Mississauga manufacturing centre is targeted for opening in 2023.

MISSISSAUGA, ONT. — Bombardier has announced that Mississauga, Ont. will be home to a new global manufacturing centre for its Global business jets.

The 41.2-acre facility will be located on Toronto Pearson lands stated a Dec. 4 release. The work was previously done at Bombardier’s facility in Downsview, in Toronto. Bombardier signed a long-term lease agreement with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority to enable the build.

The project is targeted for completion in 2023.

The new one-million-square-foot facility will have the capacity to build up to 100 aircrafts a year with thousands employed.

The plant will house the final assembly line for the manufacturing of Bombardier’s Global business jets and includes hangar space for pre-flight activities.

Bombardier also confirmed it will continue to support the aerospace heritage of the Downsview site with a multi-million-dollar contribution to the Downsview Aerospace Innovation and Research Consortium to develop an aerospace hub for academic research and training activities. The contribution includes $2.5 million in capital funding to refurbish the historic Moth Building, where wartime Mosquito fighter bombers and Tiger Moth trainers were produced.

“Mississauga is thrilled to welcome Bombardier to our city — a leading global aerospace hub and home to Canada’s largest aerospace sector,” said Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie in the release.

“Bombardier could have picked anywhere in the world to locate their Global Manufacturing Centre but they chose Mississauga. Not only will this investment support jobs and attract talent, but it will also boost economic growth and help raise Mississauga’s profile as a global aerospace hub where innovation in aerospace thrives.”

“Today, I’m very excited to announce the relocation of our Global aircraft family production activities to a new, cutting-edge manufacturing facility at Toronto Pearson. This is a strategic move for Bombardier and a strong commitment to Ontario’s aerospace industry. It will allow us to offer world-class career opportunities and continue fuelling the economic development of the region for years to come,” said Alain Bellemare, president and CEO of Bombardier, in a statement.
