Canadian Aerospace Leadership: A Global Perspective

More than ever, success in aerospace requires a global perspective. Sprawling supply chains, the flow of goods, talent and innovation, and the realities of doing business in marketplaces around the world impact Canadian aerospace bottom lines on a daily basis. The 2019 Canadian Aerospace Summit will explore the global considerations that Canadian aerospace companies – and their partners in government, research and education – must keep in mind if they want to stay ahead of the curve:

  • What are the current challenges to growth, productivity and competitiveness?
  • Where are the emerging opportunities for the industry, and what do companies need to know in order to take advantage of them?
  • What is Canada doing to face these challenges and opportunities… and what should it be doing?
  • What strategies are other aerospace nations using to increase their competitiveness and empower their aerospace industries, both domestically and around the world?
  • What should non-Canadian companies know about accessing the vast talent and opportunity in the Canadian aerospace sector?

With speakers from Canada and around the world representing companies of every size and sector, the Canadian Aerospace Summit is a must-attend event for anyone interested in making sure that Canadian aerospace growth continues to accelerate into the next decade and beyond.


The Canadian Aerospace Summit is growing, extending its reach across the world. Successful players from an increasingly globalized aerospace industry will meet in Ottawa to share knowledge and discuss possible avenues of collaboration in meeting the challenges of future growth.

The 2019 Edition will bring together Canadian and international companies of all sizes, government, and academia for two days in Canada’s capital discussing a variety of topics on a cutting-edge theme presently in development.

Over 1,200 participants, primarily C-suite executives, and government officials are expected to attend.


The 2019 Canadian Aerospace Summit offers four distinct events:

  • A Conference Program featuring renowned Canadian and international speakers
  • A one-day B2B & Trade Show matchmaking program connecting prime contractors with potential suppliers
  • The Aerospace Leadership Luncheon
  • The Annual Canadian Aerospace Reception and Dinner
