AC hires quite a bit from the two - CMA and georgian, others at that level would be bearskin or regional 1( and other dash8 operators).
Jazz supplies a few, although you are not elligable(at least in 2007) for AC from jazz, until you have worked at least 2 years at Jazz (AC knows it dose not make sence to train a pilot at jazz, then have them retrained not to long after for the mainline fleet, read this in "so you want to be a pilot eh".

When I wrote "So, You Want to be a Pilot, Eh?" in late 2006 and 2007, there was a general freeze in hiring new hires from Jazz. As Air Canada and Jazz have split into completely different companies I don't think this is still the case. That's the problem with having something in print, you can't easily update things everytime Air Canada changes its hiring policies or another airline goes bankrupt! I've thought of doing a new edition, but it's a huge time commitment and although I'm involved in the industry, I'm somewhat separated from the latest updates in the flight training industry and trends in airline hiring.

That being said, the vast majority of the information in the book is still very relevant and topical. Especially the considerations regarding the reasons for becoming a pilot and the routes to get there. Everybody is different, but, in these somewhat uncertain labour times, you really need to consider the reasons you are becoming a pilot and have a back-up plan. Don't just get into it because you want to fly the big iron!

I try to answer questions that are e-mailed to me.

Cheers
