Pratt & Whitney Canada (PWC or P&WC) is a Canadian aircraft engine manufacturer. PWC's headquarters are in Longueuil, Quebec, just outside Montreal. It is a division of the larger US-based Pratt & Whitney (P&W), itself a business unit of United Technologies. United Technologies has given PWC a world mandate for smaller aircraft engines while P&W's US operations develop and manufacture larger engines.

Although PWC is a division of P&W, it has its own research, development and marketing as well as the manufacturing of its engines. Since the development of its famous PT6 turboprop engine in the 1960s, PWC has dominated its sector of the world market for aircraft engines. The company currently has 9,200 employees worldwide, with 6,200 of them in Canada.
