The Government of Canada, through the Canada First Defence Strategy, has committed to provide stable and predictable funding to the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces in order to continue building a first-class military that is well-trained, well-equipped and ready to take on the challenges of the 21st century.

The Department of National Defence is committed to a procurement system that ensures the Canadian Armed Forces are equipped with a modern military that can protect and defend Canada well into the future. The consistent, committed, long-term funding outlined in the Canada First Defence Strategy ensures the military has the equipment needed to be a modern, flexible force capable of defending Canada, and Canadian interests.

The Industrial Regional Benefits policy further consults the defence and security industry to best determine the process, and maximize economic opportunities at home. Leveraging investments in military equipment to the benefit of industry and workers creates jobs, and ensures long-term prosperity for Canadians.

Please see Projects and Announcements for more information about our equipment projects and the benefits to Canadian industry as a result of defence investments.
