CADSI launches webpage to highlight Member contributions to the fight against COVID-19
In this time of crisis, defence and security companies are rising to new challenges and stepping up where help is needed most. Whether it’s by providing the Canadian Armed Forces and frontline healthcare workers with desperately needed equipment and training or finding creative ways to support local communities, these efforts showcase the innovation, dedication, passion and pride at the heart of Canada’s defence and security industries.
To share how Members are helping Canada through this pandemic, we’ve launched a new webpage highlighting their stories. We'll be updating this page on a regular basis over the coming weeks. Check it out and submit your own story here (link: defenceandsecurity.ca/media/covid-response).

CADSI is working with the federal government and our allied partners to keep supplies and component parts moving. Please let Mindy Pearce (email@example.com) know if your business has been impacted by cargo disruptions such as skyrocketing fees, unavailable transport, lack of warehouse space or anything else related to air cargo transport.
