Alstom 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. In Canada, the company is physically present in Quebec, in Montreal, where it has its local headquarters, and in Sorel-Tracy, and also in Ontario, in Ottawa, Toronto and Brampton. Alstom is involved in mobility projects across the country.

The company provides the largest range of solutions for mobility and public transportation, from trains to integrated systems, digital mobility solutions to services. It 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..
