Thanks from the Pionairs Pension Committee

September 23, 2021

We would like to express our appreciation to all the AC Pionairs who took part in the recent letter-writing campaign to both their local MP and the various party leaders related to pension protection.

In collaboration with the Canadian Federation of Pensioners (CFP) the Pionairs were part of the 37,717 emails sent to various candidates in the recent Federal Election. While we did receive acknowledgement of our letters, we will continue to push the respective parties to enact a federal law to enshrine pension protection.

Currently the various AC Pension plans are fully funded. Nevertheless we must remain vigilant in our collective efforts in ensuring those plans remain viable.

Please be assured that your Pension Committee continues to look out for the interest of all AC Pionairs.



Explorations is a free program that provides training on courses of interest to Pionairs members.

We have provided several courses on Zoom for Beginners, Hosting a Zoom Meeting, and Internet Security, and are developing plans for Wellness seminars, How to Use Aeronet/HR Connex, AC Life, Estate Planning and many more.

Membership in Pionairs provides a lot of value for only $20/year – and that includes your spouse/partner. If you are not a Pionairs member and would like to take part in these free programs and enjoy the many other benefits of membership, simply click the “Join Pionairs” button at the top of the page. We’d love to have you join us!

Nicole has followed her passion for art and enjoys sharing this passion and her time with other Pionairs members. The sense of belonging her fellow Pionairs give her reassure her that the bonds of friendship will last far beyond her retirement.



During our time at Air Canada, we forge strong bonds that can be described more like family than just friendships. The Air Canada Pionairs allows us to maintain those relationships while exploring the next chapter in our lives. These are bonds that helped define who we are and help prepare us for what comes next…
