Industry Minister Moore at Canada's largest defence trade show discussing measures to help the industry grow and create jobs
May 28, 2015 – Ottawa – Industry Canada
Minister of Industry James Moore spoke today at CANSEC, Canada's premier defence trade show, where he highlighted how government defence procurement policies strengthen the competitiveness of Canadian defence and security firms, while creating jobs and benefits across the supply chain.
Minister Moore discussed actions taken by the government to sustain the success of the defence and security industries. These include changes made to the Industrial and Technological Benefits Policy that will help attract earlier investment by prime contractors in Canadian firms, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises, while reducing red tape and increasing the transparency and accountability of the policy.
Minister Moore also reiterated the government's commitment to continue working with the industry to create high-quality jobs and grow Canada's economy.
