Future Fighter Regional Forums

Event Date: April 23-May 1, 2018


The following message is from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED).

The Government of Canada is coming to a city near you to share more about the project and the important industrial opportunities for your organization on the Future Fighter Capability Project.  The full cross-Canada schedule is below:

  • Monday, April 23 – Ottawa, Ontario
  • Tuesday, April 24 – Toronto, Ontario
  • Wednesday, April 25 – Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • Friday, April 27 – Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Monday, April 30 – Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • Tuesday, May 1 – Montreal, Québec

During these forums you will have the chance to meet with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM), Tier 1s and Government officials on the Future Fighter opportunity.  The following companies and government departments have confirmed their participation for the B2B/B2G sessions: Airbus, Boeing, Dassault, Lockheed Martin, Saab, General Electric, Pratt and Whitney, Thales, Safran, Innovation Science and Economic Development Canada, the Department of National Defence, Public Services and Procurement Canada and the Regional Development Agencies.

Engaging with potential OEM’s and their Tier 1 companies early increases your chances of success on the largest Royal Canadian Air Force project in a generation. Not interested in working directly with an OEM on fighter production or sustainment?  This event is still for you!

  • Potential OEM’s and their Tier 1’s will be looking for companies and research institutions that can help them in developing their economic proposal to Canada as part of the Future Fighter competition.
