Location/Date: Ottawa, Canada 02/14/2013 - 02/14/2013
Event Summary:
The Government of Canada (GOC) is one of the largest purchasing entities in the world, with yearly military expenditures reaching an average of US$20 billion, mostly on air, land and marine equipment, and related support services.

With the United States being the biggest supplier of the majority of military related products for the marine, aerospace and defense sectors, Canada represents a key export target market for U.S. manufacturers, as Canada continues aligning its military spending (upgrade and replacement of equipment) to reinforce surveillance and monitoring of Canada's northern regions, and to meet its UN, NORAD, and NATO obligations.

Our webinar will begin with an update under the $35 billion National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy, followed by a review of the United States and Canada's Export Control Regimes, the Canadian Government Procurement Process, and an overview of Canada's Industrial Regional Benefits (IRB) program.

Experts from legal firm Heenan Blaikie LLP will provide a general overview of procurement processes when pursuing opportunities under Canada's Marine, Aerospace and Defense sectors.

At the end of the presentation, U.S. suppliers will learn of a number of U.S. Commercial Service programs created to enhance your competitiveness and business presence in Canada.

A Q&A session will be available at the end of the webinar.
