Future Fighter Regional Forums -

April 23-May 1, 2018

Following the launch of the competition for the Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP), Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) Canada, will be holding Regional Forums (April 23, 2018 to May 1, 2018) across the country to provide information on the FFCP to Canadian industry and other stakeholders. This will be held in partnership with Canada’s Regional Development Agencies, the Department of National Defence, and Public Services and Procurement Canada.


The open and transparent competition to replace Canada’s CF-18 fleet with 88 advanced fighter aircraft is the most significant investment in the Royal Canadian Air Force in many years, and Canada is seeking strong economic benefits under the Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) Policy.


This will also be an opportunity to learn more about the ITB Policy including Value Proposition, better understand the sustainment strategy for this project, provide feedback on the economic benefits approach, and to engage with potential prime contractors through business to business meetings. These direct engagements will assist in establishing partnerships, and thus help fighter manufacturers fulfill the requirements of Canada’s ITB Policy.


The event schedule is as follows:  


  • Monday, April 23 – Ottawa, Ontario
  • Tuesday, April 24 – Toronto, Ontario
  • Wednesday, April 25 – Winnipeg, Manitoba
  • Friday, April 27 – Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Monday, April 30 – Halifax, Nova Scotia
  • Tuesday, May 1 – Montreal, Québec
