Narrative:
A Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft operated by WestJet, was conducting flight WJA1245 from Tampa Intl (KTPA), FL to Toronto/Lester B. Pearson Intl (CYYZ), ON.
Just after "flaps Up" on departure, the flight crew received a STAB OUT OF TRIM annunciator light. QRH procedures were executed, and the flight crew continued to CYYZ. Passing FL210 during the arrival sequence, the flight crew declared a PAN PAN as they entered Toronto Centre (CZYZ) airspace. The aircraft continued for an uneventful landing with ARFF standing by. The operator's maintenance replaced the Stabilizer Trim Motor, and the aircraft was returned to service after a successful test of the system.
