Message from the Chair:
Welcome to our updated site! In addition to the new layout, we have integrated a payment portal which makes registering for WestDef and TACWest and joining our association easier than ever.
The update is part of our efforts to connect businesses supporting Defence and Security communities in Western Canada and facilitate connections. There is a lot going on in this arena with major procurements including Future Fighter and the Canadian Surface Combatant. There are also innovation funds through existing programs like the Build in Canada Innovation Program (BCIP) and the newly announced Innovation for Defence Excellence and Security (IDEaS).
Please join us and let us help connect you and your business. If you have any suggestions or feedback please feel free to contact me at dbrown[at]wcdia.com.
