Canada is going to the Moon!

‹UPDATE› We have added an info session for Ottawa. On Thursday, August the 15th, we look forward to hosting you at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. The Canada Aviation and Space Museum is also the home of the iconic Canadarm that flew on many Space Shuttle missions!

MDA is inviting Canadian companies, universities and colleges to attend an information session regarding upcoming deep space exploration programs, including Canada’s contribution of Canadarm3 to the NASA-led Lunar Gateway. In these sessions, we will share our understanding of these programs and our plans for the future.

Our goal is to work with Canadian partners to make these deep space exploration programs a foundation for a sustainable and competitive Canadian industry and academia with world-leading capabilities in robotics, Artificial Intelligence, autonomous systems, vision systems, mining and others. We will be visiting different cities to meet with all parties that are interested collaborating on this topic. At each session the program will be:


  • Overview of various international deep space exploration programs
  • Overview of potential Canadian contributions
  • Overview of technologies that will be required
  • Discussion on how to create a sustainable space ecosystem that generates significant economic and scientific returns for Canada’s investment in deep space exploration
  • MDA LaunchPad introduction
  • Questions & Answers


1pm start

  • One-on-one sessions - opportunity for detailed discussions and questions
