Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada, in partnership with the Department of National Defence, and Public Services and Procurement Canada, as well as Canada’s Regional Development Agencies, will be holding Regional Forums (April 23, 2018 to May 1, 2018) across the country to provide information on the Future Fighter Capability Project to Canadian industry and other stakeholders. The open and transparent competition to replace Canada’s CF-18 fleet with 88 advanced fighter aircraft is the most significant investment in the Royal Canadian Air Force in many years, and Canada is seeking strong economic benefits under the Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) Policy.
This will also be an opportunity to learn more about the ITB Policy including the Value Proposition, better understand the sustainment strategy for this project, provide feedback on the economic benefits approach, and to engage with potential prime contractors.
Each organization should complete one registration form and include the names of all proposed attendees. Due to limited capacity, ISED reserves the right to limit participation from each organization (two participants per company are encouraged).
