Saab and the Consortium for Research and Innovation in Aerospace in Quebec (CRIAQ) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

The partnership agreement is expected to boost collaboration with Canadian industry, universities and other research organisations.

CRIAQ CEO Alain Aubertin said: “We are very pleased with this signing as we continue to develop our aerospace industry, adding a new global player to our ecosystem.

“I am convinced that CRIAQ’s academic, industrial and SME community, and the Quebec economy as well, will clearly benefit from this international collaboration.”

This agreement also deepens the commitments of Saab to the Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) Policy of Canada in the future.

Introduced in 2014, ITB is an economic commitment made by bidders to the country. It requires companies that are awarded defence procurement projects in invest and undertake business activity in the country.

In July 2019, Saab submitted a proposal to include 88 Gripen E fighters for Canada’s Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP).

Saab Aeronautics business area vice-president and head Jonas Hjelm said: “The quality and breadth of aerospace research and innovation in Canada is globally recognised, with the Quebec region home to many excellent companies and institutions.

    Le gouvernement attribue un contrat pour la conception d’une installation destinée aux futurs chasseurs à Cold Lake

    Le 27 août 2020 – Ottawa (Ontario) – Défense nationale/Forces armées canadiennes Comme énoncé dans sa politique de défense Protection, Sécurité, Engagement, le gouvernement du Canada fournit aux membres du personnel des Forces armées canadiennes (FAC) les installations et les outils requis pour soutenir leurs opérations dans l’avenir. Aujourd’hui, l’honorable Harjit S. Sajjan, ministre de la Défense nationale, a annoncé l’attribution d’un contrat de 9,2 M$ à l’entreprise EllisDon Construction Services Inc. d’Edmonton (Alberta) pour la conception d’une installation destinée aux nouveaux chasseurs à la 4e Escadre Cold Lake, l’une des deux principales bases d’opérations pour les futurs chasseurs du Canada. On prévoit également l’attribution d’un autre contrat pour la construction d’une seconde installation à la 3e Escadre Bagotville. Ces infrastructures permettront d’assurer l’entretien et l’exploitation à long terme des 88 nouveaux avions acquis par l’Aviation royale canadienne (ARC) dans le cadre du Projet de capacité future en matière d’avions chasseurs (PCFAC). L’attribution de ce contrat permet de franchir une étape importante pour préparer Cold Lake à accueillir les nouveaux chasseurs, et constitue un pas de plus vers l’atteinte de notre objectif de fournir à nos aviateurs les infrastructures dont ils auront besoin dans l’avenir. Les deux projets d’infrastructure permettront également de générer d’importantes retombées économiques dans l’industrie canadienne de la construction et de stimuler l’économie régionale à Bagotville et à Cold Lake. Au total, plus de 900 emplois devraient être créés dans le cadre des travaux de conception et de construction des deux installations. L’infrastructure de Cold Lake hébergera deux escadrons d’appui tactique. Avec une superficie d’environ 19 300 m2, elle fournira l’espace nécessaire pour les opérations quotidiennes, l’entretien, l’administration, la planification de mission et l’entrainement sur simulateur. Elle abritera également des escadrons d’entrainement opérationnel et d’appui tactique et leurs installations d’entrainement. Citations « Nous investissons dans cette infrastructure moderne qui abritera nos futurs chasseurs, car nous savons qu’il est essentiel d’assurer la protection et la sécurité des Canadiens et de respecter les obligations internationales du Canada envers le NORAD et l’OTAN. Une flotte de chasseurs modernes est essentielle pour défendre notre pays et notre souveraineté, et ces installations sont indispensables au succès de ces operations. » L’honorable Harjit S. Sajjan, ministre de la Défense nationale « Ce projet d’infrastructure constitue un investissement important dans l’avenir des Forces armées canadiennes et de la communauté de Cold Lake. La construction de cette installation permettra de maintenir les emplois à proximité de la Base, et de s’assurer que nos forces militaires sont bien outillées pour affronter l’avenir. »   Mme Anita Vandenbeld, secrétaire parlementaire du ministre de la Défense nationale Faits en bref Nous prévoyons attribuer le contrat pour la conception de l’installation destinée aux nouveaux chasseurs à Bagotville en septembre 2020. Le début des travaux de construction aux deux bases est prévu à l’été 2022.  Les deux contrats de conception comprendront des options pour la construction des nouvelles installations, ainsi que de toute infrastructure supplémentaire requise en fonction de l’avion choisi, si le Canada décidait d’exercer ces options de prolongation. En attribuant ces contrats de conception des infrastructures avant de choisir les futurs chasseurs, nous pourrons commencer les travaux nécessaires, quel que soit l’avion choisi. Ainsi, les deux escadres seront prêtes pour la livraison des premiers appareils. Ces installations seront conçues et construites de manière à respecter la désignation LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Argent et à incorporer autant de mesures efficaces sur le plan énergétiques que possible.

  • New Cyber Security Strategy bolsters cyber safety, innovation and prosperity

    New Cyber Security Strategy bolsters cyber safety, innovation and prosperity

    The Government of Canada is committed to defending Canada and Canadians against cyber threats. Today, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, the Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence, and the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science & Economic Development delivered the National Cyber Security Strategy. This new strategy will guide the Government of Canada’s cyber security activities to safeguard Canadians’ digital privacy, security and economy. The strategy strengthens both how we combat cybercrimes and how we defend against them. It consolidates federal cyber operations into the new Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, which will create one clear and trusted national authority. Instead of several different departments, the Centre will provide a single window for expert advice and services for governments, critical infrastructure operators, and both the public and private sector to strengthen their cyber security. The Centre’s first head will be Scott Jones, who is currently responsible for the IT Security Branch at the Communications Security Establishment. A new National Cybercrime Coordination Unit in the RCMP will support and coordinate cybercrime investigations between police forces across the country. New investments will bolster the RCMP’s capacity to investigate major cybercrimes that affect the Government of Canada, impact critical infrastructure, and cause the most harm to Canadians. These investments will also enhance the RCMP’s ability to conduct criminal investigations with domestic and international partners and provide specialized cyber capability to major investigations. In addition, small and medium-sized businesses will be able to enhance their cyber security with guidance and tools through the Centre, as well as a new voluntary cyber certification program, which will outline best practices to help businesses understand and respond to cyber threats. For Canadians, the strategy and associated investments mean a clear and trusted federal source for cyber security information, practical tips to apply to everyday online activities and heightened awareness of malicious cyber activity. For businesses, the National Cyber Security Strategy puts into place a framework that will improve their systems’ resilience. For researchers and academics, it will support advanced research, fostering innovation, skills and knowledge. And for the digital systems we rely on every day, like online banking, electricity grids and telecommunications, it will support stronger security, and more rapid and coordinated federal responses to cyber threats. Quotes “Cyber security is not only a challenge, but an opportunity. Virtually every aspect of our modern lives depends on information technology. If Canadians are empowered to improve their cyber security and adapt to new threats—across government, the private sector and our personal use—we will not only realize the potential of the digital economy and keep our own data secure, but we can sell those skills and innovations to the huge, growing market in the rest of the world, creating high-paying middle class jobs. The National Cyber Security Strategy is the Government of Canada’s roadmap to get there.” - The Honourable Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness “The threats we face in cyberspace are complex and rapidly evolving; more than ever, cyber security is of paramount importance. Cyber security is not just a necessity, but a competitive advantage for Canada. The National Cyber Security Strategy establishes a clear focal point for cyber security within the federal government. The Communications Security Establishment is well-positioned to create and house the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security by building on the tremendous skill and talent that already exist within the government and partnering with industry to strengthen cyber security in Canada.” - The Honourable Harjit S. Sajjan, Minister of National Defence “The Government of Canada is committed to safeguarding Canadians’ digital privacy, security and the economy. For Canada’s small and medium-sized businesses, cyber threats can have profound economic consequences. That is why we are investing over $25 million over five years for a voluntary assessment and certification program to help small and medium-sized businesses protect themselves against cyber threats. This new certification program will improve cyber security among Canadian small and medium-sized businesses, increase consumer confidence, and better position small and medium-sized businesses to compete globally.”  - The Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science & Economic Development “I am honoured to be named the first head of the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security. The Cyber Centre will bring together the government’s leading-edge cyber security operational talent from the Communications Security Establishment, Public Safety, and Shared Services Canada to be a unified and trusted source for cyber security information for the country. The Cyber Centre will be outward-facing, open to collaboration with industry partners and academia, as well as a trusted resource for faster, stronger responses to cyber security incidents. Cyber security is, and continues to be a team effort.” - Scott Jones, Head of Canadian Centre for Cyber Security and Deputy Chief, IT Security, CSE  Quick facts Canadians spend the most time on-line of any country in the world – at 43.5 hours each per month. Cybercrime costs Canada 0.17% of its GDP, which is equal to $3.12 billion a year. Cyber-crime globally is estimated to cause $600-billion (US) in economic losses in 2018 and more than $6 trillion (US) by 2021. The global market for cyber security products and services is currently worth more than $96 billion (US), and is expected to grow to over $202 billion (US) by 2021. Budget 2018 invested $507.7M over five years and $108.8M per year ongoing to support the new Strategy. It includes: $155.2M over five years and $44.5M per year ongoing, to create the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security; $116M over five years and $23.2M per year ongoing, to the RCMP for the creation of the National Cybercrime Coordination Unit; $85.3M over five years and $19.8M ongoing for increased RCMP enforcement capacity; and $28.4M over five years for cyber certification. The remaining funds are for additional initiatives to support greater cyber security and resilience for small and medium-sized businesses, as well as the energy and financial sectors. In addition, Budget 2018 invested a further $220 million over six years in Shared Services Canada and the Communications Security Establishment to better protect government networks and data; and $30 million over five years and $5 million ongoing in the Canada Revenue Agency to protect taxpayers’ personal information. The Strategy reflects the perspectives from the Cyber Review and consultation. https://www.canada.ca/en/public-safety-canada/news/2018/06/new-cyber-security-strategy-bolsters-cyber-safety-innovation-and-prosperity.html
