Leveraging Future Military Spending to Create Jobs and Economic Growth in Canada
December 19, 2014 – Ottawa – Industry Canada
Industry Canada today released the Government of Canada's Value Proposition Guide, which outlines the Government's approach to assessing defence and Coast Guard procurements. The guide will serve as a reference for companies that want to successfully bid on future defence procurement contracts.
The Value Proposition Guide is a new tool for fostering investment in the Canadian defence industry. The guide will ensure that the Government of Canada's Defence Procurement Strategy will result in the creation of high-skilled jobs and economic growth across the Canadian economy.
The guide was developed after months of extensive consultations with industry leaders. The Value Proposition Guide is supported by large contractors, small and medium-sized businesses, and industry associations, including the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI) and the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada (AIAC).
Industry Canada will host a series of technical briefings starting in January 2015 to ensure that companies understand the purpose of the Value Proposition Guide as it relates to new military procurement opportunities.
