Our Members

CADSI membership is comprised of more than 800 Canadian defence and security companies from across Canada that produce world-class goods, services and technologies made across Canada and sought the world over.

The Canadian Defence and Security Capabilities Database is a searchable collection that showcases the Canadian depth and breadth of defence, maritime, aerospace, security and space capabilities. 

The database is the government’s primary tool to search for defence and security capabilities. It is an effective and efficient way for defence attachés, Canadian trade commissioners, business development officers from the Canadian Commercial Corporation, and Industrial and Regional Benefits/Industrial and Technological Benefits managers from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada to find Canadian suppliers of defence and security capabilities. It’s also popular with the industrial customer base and potential industrial partners.

The database is the perfect tool to ensure companies are known to key domestic and international government and industry influencers and decision makers. We encourage all CADSI members to participate in the database.
