It's often a challenge for Canadian players in the defence and national security market to find subcontractors in Québec. This is especially true when dealing with foreign players.

To facilitate these exchanges and highlight the skills and expertise of Québec companies, Aéro Montréal, STIQ, Québec International and the ministère de l’Économie, de la Science et de l’Innovation (MESI) created SDQuébec, a collaborative business platform that is informative and proactive, to help the development of Québec companies in the defence and national security sectors. The ultimate reference tool, SDQuébec is one-stop shop for key industry players in Québec, Canada and abroad.



We offer:

  • A portal that supports the positioning and outreach of Québec businesses in Canada and abroad;
  • A user-friendly tool to attract prime contractors to the business potential represented by Québec defence and national security companies;
  • A centralized information bank that includes activities and events related to the defence and national security sectors (training, coaching, missions, trade shows, business networking activities, etc.) along with active opportunity monitoring, including national defence procurement programs, as well as federal programs and policies of Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB);
  • A mapping of Québec's security and defence sectors to allow Québec companies to showcase their industrial and research capabilities to potential customers or partners;
  • Access to content and resources of all relevant government departments and agencies (both federal and provincial);
