VIAA is aggressively marketing Vancouver Island to the global aerospace industry at CANSEC 2015.
CANSEC is Canada’s premier defense trade show. It is occurring May 27 & 28, 2015 in Ottawa. The trade show is attended by over 30 international countries.
VIAA Treasurer Ray Brougham will then continue onto Montreal where he will be bidding on a multi-year contract with Bombardier. This would insure cooperation between industry, UVic’s Centre for Aerospace Research (CfAR), and Camosun College. VIAA continues to expose Vancouver Island as a credible supply base to global industry leaders such as Bombardier, Boeing, and Airbus.
“With the immense depth of talent we have on Vancouver Island in the Aerospace and associated industries we believe we can make a significant contribution to the requirements of Prime aircraft manufacturers both in Canada and Globally.” – Mark Sylvester, President of VIAA
