CFN Consultants is a partnership established in 1983 to provide strategic advice and direct support to the defence and security industry in procurement, contracting and market opportunities. The partnership has expanded well beyond its initial involvement in defence procurement and services and now serves a broad community of clients. These have included government departments and agencies, but the concentration is with Canadian and offshore companies – from small to large – in the defence, high-tech, aerospace and IM/IT sectors.

CFN provides advice and support to industry on government relations, procurement opportunities and priorities, and on terms and issues related to contracting. Consultants are also active in providing guidance and assistance with business and marketing plan preparation, proposal preparation and review, contract and negotiation guidance, and lifecycle support. Moreover, CFN provides extensive assistance to companies with Industrial and Technological Benefits (offset) obligations – from strategy development, to detailed planning, to researching opportunities, to the submission of transaction proposals and value propositions. With its extensive network throughout the industry, CFN is able to facilitate linkages between those with ITB obligations and those who can assist in fulfilling them.

CFN is headquartered in Ottawa but has representation in Victoria . Additionally, CFN Consultants (Atlantic), based in Halifax and providing similar services, can be contacted at 902-491-4279. Overall, the extensive background of the partnership team, gained through previous senior government, military and industry appointments, gives CFN a depth of experience and knowledge to effectively assist clients in all aspects of the interface between the public and private sectors.The partners of CFN and their associates are well-known to the leaders of both industry and government and have earned the respect of both for their capabilities, judgment, integrity, experience and discretion.
