Grow Your Defence Business Beyond Canada's Borders

The United States Department of Defense is looking to buy Canadian technologies. Could yours be one?

New Guide for Canadian Defence Companies 

Why should you consider the U.S. Department of Defense (U.S. DoD)? This market isn’t just for American companies. Nor is it just for large defence contractors. The U.S. DoD works extensively with a wide variety of Canadian businesses from manufacturing and technology to transportation and R&D. In total, defence export sales to the U.S in 2016 from Canada were approximately $2 billion CAD.


Why now? Covid-19 continues to impact Canada’s economy and is shaking up international trade. Canadian businesses are looking to adjust their business plans and are looking at non-traditional ways that will get their products and services to markets they may not have considered before.


Why should you work with the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC)? Our Prime Contractor Service helps small businesses successfully navigate doing business with the U.S. DoD. Because of CCC’s role, Canadian companies have almost full access to U.S. military procurement opportunities. Learn more about CCC.


There is a unique opportunity for Canadian small and medium businesses in sectors beyond defence. Making it happen may be less complicated than you think.
