The federal government has announced more than $1 million in funding to the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries to increase the presence of western Canadian defence and security-based industries at international defence procurement events.

With this funding, CADSI will establish a Canada Pavilion at eight key international defence and security events. The pavilion will be branded, and feature a booth space, a lounge, and private meeting rooms.

In addition, CADSI will develop two trade missions to Asia-Pacific or South American nations based on industry priorities.
