Does Anyone Know The Exact Date TCA Was Formed?

Sat Dec 11, 2004 1:18 am

I am wondering if anyone knows the exact date that TCXA was formed and started flights since I need some articles about them from the Toronto Star online Archives and don't know what dates to search, even though I know it was 1937 that they started in.

There is a good overview available at:

From an online encyclopedia (only viewable through Google cache):

"Air Canada Air Canada was incorporated by an Act of Parliament 10 April 1937, to provide a publicly owned air transportation service. Stock was vested in Canadian National Railways. Scheduled operations commenced on 1 September 1937 when passenger and mail service was inaugurated between Vancouver, BC, and Seattle, Washington."
