Twenty-one people, including three children, were taken to hospitals after an overseas flight to Toronto encountered turbulence and was diverted to Calgary.

Emergency Medical Services spokesman Stuart Brideaux says those transported to Calgary area hospitals were in stable condition with neck and back injuries.

He says none of the injuries was life threatening.

Air Canada spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur says flight 088 hit turbulence on en route to Toronto from Shanghai.

A website that track air-traffic control data showed the plane changed course over northern British Columbia.

The flight was carrying 332 passengers and 19 crew members.
