Alstom, a long-term Canadian mobility partner 

Alstom’s headquarters for the Americas Region is based in St-Bruno, Quebec. The company has been present in Canada for over 80 years, in the areas of naval and rail transport, power generation and power transmission. In 2015, Alstom went back to its roots and refocused all its activities on mobility. After the acquisition of Bombardier Transportation in January 2021, Alstom has become the reference partner for Canada in terms of mobility and the first private rail operator in North America.

With rolling stock and components sites in Brampton, Kingston and Thunder Bay in Ontario as well as Sorel-Tracy, La Pocatière and St-Bruno in Quebec, very long-term, structuring mobility projects and offices across the country, Alstom is a proud Canadian player.

The company provides the largest range of solutions for mobility and public transportation, from trains to integrated systems, and digital mobility solutions to signalling. Alstom also provides operations and maintenance services to transit systems across North America and supports transit systems with overhaul and refurbishment programs and material and technology solutions. The company relies not only on unrivalled technologies, the experience and skills of its Canadian teams, but also on the development of a powerful network with local suppliers and partners.

Alstom’s social responsibility commitments

Accessibility for all

For Alstom, mobility must be universal. With humility and understanding, its teams work to optimize solutions by combining their expertise with the expectations of all passengers. A good example: this video on the design of the REM with Xavier Allard, Alstom’s D&S Studio Director.

Responsible sourcing

Through its long-term local commitment, Alstom promotes Canadian content for its projects and today works with 340+ suppliers across Canada. Alstom develops complex and integrated projects that require a strong and trustworthy ecosystem in order to succeed. To achieve this, Alstom has created a dedicated Sustainable Sourcing Policy, including an Ethics and Sustainable Development Charter, for Alstom’s suppliers and contractors. Alstom has set the objective that all its suppliers and contractors commit to respecting this charter and comply with all laws.

Support for the communities

Inclusive and responsible, Alstom’s teams work with the communities through a corporate foundation or voluntary initiatives as part of Canada’s community action plan. During the COVID-19 crisis, for example, Alstom supported the Shielding Heroes campaign to provide medical equipment for frontline medical workers in Ottawa, Ontario..
