Diversity and Inclusion

All qualified individuals seeking job opportunities with us will be considered for employment without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, physical ability, sexual orientation, gender or age.

Alcoa Women’s Network

Established in 2003, the Alcoa Women's Network drives the development and advancement of women leaders throughout the company by helping Alcoa improve its practices for recruiting, retaining and promoting such leaders. The Québec chapter of the Alcoa Women's Network aims to promote women leaders within the company, notably by providing a forum for sharing their experiences.






Global Expertise

The scope of Alcoa Global Primary Products activities in Canada reaches well beyond the borders of Québec and Canada. Thanks to projects in Iceland, Norway and elsewhere in the world, members of our operational and technical teams are sharing their ideas and best practices globally.


Sometimes, they host colleagues from other countries to exchange on what they have learned – or learn something new. In other cases, they have been invited to travel to other parts of the world for a few days or even a few months. Coordinated by the Smelting Centre of Excellence, a pool of experts operating throughout Alcoa’s Global Primary Products but based at our Deschambault Smelter, our team is sharing its expertise with colleagues across the globe.
