Description

Military Procurement for a Purpose: Refreshing Canada’s Defence Strategy

Military procurement is a very complex business; understood in detail by few, scrutinized and criticized by many. As the world remains a dangerous and unstable place, Canada’s overall security is tied to our ability to project power if and when needed and that means a well-equipped and modern military. But recent high-profile setbacks in military procurement threaten Canada’s ability to get the new kit needed to make our military strong, and responsive. Moreover, the election of a new Liberal government likely means that Canadian foreign and defence policies will be reviewed, as well as current capital projects, to realign defence policy with a new tone and substance in foreign policy. Please join The School of Public Policy and the Canadian Global Affairs Institute as we explore how all this may unfold with a new government and how it may have an impact on defence procurement policy.

Topics include:

- The opportunity to refresh Canada's defence policy

- Updating Canada's defence policy: where do we go from here?

- How should a new defence policy tie into Canada's manufacturing base?

We are pleased to announce the addition of a hosted reception after the event, thanks to the generous donation of Project Resolve Inc. and Davie. Please join us in the Ontario Room from 4:15 until 5:15 p.m.
