2016 Canadian Space Policy Symposium


      1st Annual Canadian Space Policy Symposium

Aligning Canada’s Future in Space with Canada’s Innovation Agenda

Canadians have long been known for their creativity and resourcefulness. Our values are driven by the pursuit of innovation, and it is that determination that will grow our economy in all sectors, especially space. Innovative Canadians will make substantial contributions at home and abroad to improve the betterment of humanity.

The Canadian Government is committed to making Canada a global innovation leader through its new initiative “Canada’s Innovation Agenda“. As such, Canadian Space Policy must fall in line with this plan to ensure a long-term and sustainable Canadian Space Strategy. The six pillars of the Canadian Innovation Agenda are integrally linked to how Canadian Space policy will evolve. They are:

  • Entrepreneurial and Creative Society
  • The Ease of Doing Business
  • World Leading Clusters and Partnerships
  • Global Science Excellence
  • Competing in a Digital World
  • Growing Companies and Accelerate Clean Growth

The Canadian Space Commerce Association is pleased to have partnered with the Canadian Space Policy Centre (CSPC) where the 1st Annual Canadian Space Policy Symposium held in advance of the Canadian Science Policy Conference 2016. The Space Policy Symposium was a one-day event that will bring the relevant stakeholders together to discuss Canada’s space sector in relation to the new Innovation Agenda.
