De Havilland Aircraft of Canada plans to build an aircraft factory east of Calgary, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said Wednesday morning.

Kenney was speaking at a Toronto news conference as part of a provincial campaign to attract skilled workers to Alberta when he made the announcement.

Three lines of aircraft will be produced at the facility, Kenney said, and it’s hoped that will eventually increase to four.

“[It] will help employ 1,500 high-paying manufacturing workers in a landmark manufacturing investment in Alberta,” he said.

“Some of the work that was historically done here in Toronto at Downsview will be moved to Calgary as Downsview has been repurposed with land development.”

CBC News has reached out to De Havilland for comment.
