What the International Civil Aviation Organization Has to Say…

“ICAO’s presence in Greater Montréal is all the more warranted in light of this region’s status as one of the world’s most prominent aerospace hubs. The city is also well-appreciated for its ethnic and cultural diversity, lifestyle, safety and reasonable cost of living. All of these factors are important for a United Nations organization such as ours, as is the unwavering support of Montréal International.”

Dr. Fang Liu, Secretary General of ICAO
