Im at Jazz and we are hiring. Our bid had about 40+ openings right now. As others have pointed out, you will need Canadian licenses and the right to live/work up here to be considered.
The industry is slowly taking a toll for the worse up here too, although not quite as bad as in the USA. Westjet and Porter are pretty much the only 2 airlines that have been hiring consistently over the last while and are still recruiting. Air Canada is not hiring and is going through furlough mitigation, as we recently went through at Jazz. Lots of guys took an LOA and some went to work overseas (emirates, cathay, etc), while others were picked up by WJ.
As good as you guys think the pay is, believe it or not, but Jazz is quite often the butt of jokes up here. +15 years ago, guys at Air Ontario (Jazz is actually a regional airline that had 4 regionals merge into 1 massive company, Air Ontario, Air BC, Air Nova and Canadian Regional) were making $32000 to start as an FO on the Dash8. Their pilots had more days off and worked less on reserve too. Im coming up to year 2 pay in 2 weeks, and Ill be going to about $43000. By year 3 you are on an hourly rate (I forget what it is, but its on airline pay central website). Quite a bit more compared to what you guys see in the USA, but we gave up a lot of concessions through Air Canada's bankruptcy in 2001, and the pay was hit hard.
We have our contract negotiations coming up as well. In fact, EVERYONE associated with Air Canada (CSAs, rampies, mechanics, pilots, FAs, etc) has their contract up at the same time. There is going to be some chaos come fall as there is absolutely no way all groups will settle. There is already talk of a strike, I hope not though.
