Registration is now open for AIAC’s Space Day on the Hill, October 16, 2017

October 2, 2017

On October 16, 2017 AIAC will be hosting a Space Day on the Hill to engage Members of Parliament, Cabinet Ministers and government officials in a discussion on the importance of a strong Canadian space sector to the well-being of Canadians and of the Canadian economy.

The Space Day on the Hill provides a unique opportunity for our members to participate in a face-to-face discussion with government decision-makers on the future of the Canadian space industry as a driver of innovation in the fields of space exploration, environmental protection, defence and security, health and life sciences, the well-being of our Northern populations and the increased participation of Canadian students – including women and other under-represented groups – in STEM fields.

Our one-day program will include:

  • Briefing & networking breakfast;
  • Meetings with Cabinet Ministers;
  • Meetings with Parliamentary Secretaries;
  • Meetings with department officials;
  • An evening reception with MPs, Ministers and senior public servants

The AIAC offices will serve as the headquarters for the Day, where all activities will be coordinated. Participants will meet Ministers, Parliamentary Secretaries and department officials at their respective offices. AIAC will develop ‘leave behind’ collateral for all meetings.

Please note that registration will close on October 11, 2017.
