CADSI Appears Before House of Commons Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs
On November 7, CADSI President and CEO Christyn Cianfarani appeared before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs to provide our industry’s perspective on Bill C-47, An Act to amend the Export and Import Permits Act and the Criminal Code (amendments permitting the accession to the Arms Trade Treaty and other amendments).
During her appearance, Ms. Cianfarani reiterated CADSI’s support for the government’s commitment to accede to the UN Arms Trade Treaty while also reminding Committee members of the important role exports play in Canada’s defence and security industry.
