The recipients for 2011 are: Pratt & Whitney Canada, the 3M Company and Aernova Aerospace S.A.
Bombardier also awarded honorable mention to PPG Aerospace and Sonaca Montréal to recognize their significant CSR improvements.

Hachey, President and Chief Operating Officer; Janice L. Davis, Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer; and Hélène V.
