Event description
Join us for a day-long discussion on the holistic modernization of North American defence

About this Event

Strong, Secure, Engaged commits Canada to the modernization of North American defence through a two-pronged approach. First, the government is to work with the United States to ensure that the North American Aerospace Defence Command (NORAD) is modernized to meet existing and future challenges. Second, the Department of National Defence will develop better surveillance (including by renewing the North Warning System), defence and rapid-response capabilities in the North and in the maritime and air approaches to Canada, to strengthen continental defence, protect Canada’s rights and sovereignty and demonstrate international leadership with respect to the navigation of Arctic waters.

On January 29th, 2020, the Canadian Global Affairs Institute will host a one-day conference to discuss the modernization of North American defence, with specific attention placed on current and future cyber, space, air, and maritime based threats, exploring the type of capabilities and command arrangements required to properly defend against these. The discussion will not only discuss these matters through the lens of NORAD, but will also explore adaptation to new threats in the context of the U.S. and Canadian national militaries, the Northern Command (NorthCom), as well as the Tri-Command Agreement. Perspectives will come from military practitioners, academics, and stakeholders in the defence industry.

This event is made possible by our strategic sponsors, Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics; the Department of National Defence (MINDS Programme); our silver sponsor L3 Harris Technologies Canada; our Bronze sponsors Raytheon and The Boeing Company; and MDA.
