Aerospace

Significant investments in R&D have helped make Canada a world leader in aerospace products, ranking in the top countries for civil aircraft, engines and flight simulators. Solutions that government buyers are looking for include:

  • Aircraft manufacturing (fixed wing, rotary)
  • Maintenance, repair and overhaul services
  • Training systems
  • Satellites

Canadian aerospace and aviation companies can sell their solutions to foreign governments through our International Prime Contractor program or to the U.S. military through our U.S. DoD Prime Contractor program.

While this particular project was not fully realized, it demonstrates the services we provide to help Canadian companies succeed in the international market. 

Infrastructure

International infrastructure projects continue to present compelling opportunities for Canadian firms. The pandemic has accelerated the shift to public–private partnership financing models, requiring Canadian companies to think differently about what they offer and how to set their value proposition apart. Solutions that government buyers are looking for include:

  • Water and waste water infrastructure
  • Power and communications
  • Transportation (airports, railroads)
  • Social (hospitals, schools, housing)

ICT

Information and communications technology (ICT) companies face a number of obstacles when trying to sell their solutions to foreign governments. Some require unique solutions, and are comfortable buying individual components that can be integrated into their existing systems. Others want a complete solution that works right out of the box, and reduces implementation and operation risk. 

We work with Canadian companies to position their solutions with foreign governments and help to reduce procurement risk through our Government of Canada guarantee. Government buyers are looking for the following ICT solutions:

  • Cyber security (intrusion protection systems, critical infrastructure protection systems)
  • Voice, data and video networking solutions
  • Public safety and security solutions
  • Smart public infrastructure
  • Financial and regulatory technologies (FinTech . RegTech)
