Administrative history

In 1919 The Canadian Pacific Railway Company secured a charter from Parliament to own and operate aircraft inside and outside of Canada. Western Canada Airways Limited was formed in 1926. In 1930 Canadian Airways Limited was created when it took over the assets of the Aviation Corporation of Canada and Western Canada Airways Airlines Limited. In 1942 Canadian Pacific Air Lines (later Canadian Pacific Airlines Ltd., then CP Air) was formed by the amalgamation of Canadian Airways Limited and nine other airline systems. In 1987 the company merged with Pacific Western Airlines to become Canadian Airlines International, a subsidiary of PWA Corporation.
