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 manufacturing sites in Brampton, Kingston and Thunder Bay in Ontario, in La Pocatière and St-Bruno in Quebec, as well as 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.
