Defence Review 2016: Voice of the West July 6-7, 2016

Defence Review 2016 is underway and marks the first time in over 20 years that the public is being consulted on matters of the Canadian Defence industry. Opportunities to participate in consultations have been determined, and the WCDIA has been granted the opportunity to host one on July 6 and 7, 2016 in Calgary, Alberta.

As our national association, CADSI, has already presented their position and provided comments to be included in the review, WCDIA members and participants now have the fantastic opportunity to leverage the hard work done in Ottawa and over 2 days in July, present and prepare “The Voice of the West”.

The Defence Review must encompass the issues of the day from all regions and all sub sectors of the industry, this is why the WCDIA is so encouraged to be bringing together the companies and issues that differentiate us regionally. As the voice and participation of the Small and Medium enterprise in Western Canada is equally important, WCDIA is hosting a series of workshops in parallel to ensure awareness, understanding and opportunity for SME’s in the Aerospace, Defence and Security markets.

Both groups will have the opportunity to come together in an evening of networking as well as the B2B events.
