How do I become a Flight Attendant in Canada?
Flight attendants ensure the safety and comfort of passengers and crew members aboard aircraft.
Each air operator (airline) establishes it's own specific hiring criteria, policies and requirements, therefore, contacting these air operators individually is the best way to seek employment information and find out about any specific hiring qualifications. The Canadian Aviation Regulations require every air operator that has passenger carrying authority to establish and maintain a flight attendant training program, which is approved by Transport Canada.
An individual who wishes to become a flight attendant must be employed by an air operator. A medical test is often required by the airline; once employed, the individual is trained and paid by the airline in accordance with, and must successfully complete, the airline's training program approved by the civil aviation authority (Transport Canada). Transport Canada does not approve flight attendant training done by outside organization or vocational school. Any individual who has completed flight attendant training offered by an outside organization is still required to complete the air operator's approved training program in order to be a qualified flight attendant with that particular air operator.
