Violations of Control Laws and Sanctions Unacceptable

Ottawa, 23 September 2016 – Christyn Cianfarani, President of the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI), today issued the following statement:

CADSI takes the recent accusations of violations of UN sanctions seriously. Violating export control laws and sanctions is unacceptable. The steps taken by the government are important in order to establish the facts and to hold to account any individual or company that breaks Canada’s export control regulations.

CADSI supports the government’s commitment to accede to the UN Arms Trade Treaty, which seeks to raise the bar globally and contribute positively to strengthening global security and non-proliferation.   


The Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI) is the national industry voice of more than 800 Canadian defence and security companies that produce world-class goods, services and technologies made across Canada and sought the world over. The industries contributes to the employment of more than 63,000 Canadians and generate $10 billion in annual revenues, roughly 60 per cent of which come from exports.
