Aerospace and Space

Photo: SpacecraftCanada’s dynamic aerospace industry faces an increasingly competitive global marketplace in both civilian and defence markets. Both are populated with a complex network of government programs, defence procurements, Industrial and Regional Benefit (IRB) policies and overlapping regulations. The smallest of changes in any of these can have an unforeseen effect for a company as it competes in a global market.

We understand the mandates and priorities of government departments and the processes by which decisions are made.
