Warm welcome to all those participating in CANSEC 2019!

On behalf of Members of Ottawa City Council, it is my distinct pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all those participating in CANSEC 2019, Canada’s Global Defence and Security Trade Show, hosted by the Canadian Association of Defence and Security Industries (CADSI), and taking place at the EY Centre, in our nation’s capital, from May 29th to 30th 2019.

CANSEC provides a valuable forum for decision-makers from Canada and abroad, as well as industry stakeholders, to network and learn more about the latest technology, products and services for land-based, naval, aerospace and joint forces military units. Delegates will also have the opportunity to partake in keynote addresses given by defence and security industry experts and leaders.

I want to acknowledge the CADSI, along with the exhibitors, guest speakers, and sponsors for dedicating efforts, expertise and resources to the successful planning of Canada’s largest defence and security industry trade show. In addition, I offer my congratulations to the Paddy O’Donnell Mentorship Award recipient.

As Mayor of the host city, I invite visitors to explore the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame and the Barbara Ann Scott Gallery at City Hall, as well as the revitalized Lansdowne park, its restored heritage pavilions, and new TD Place, home of the Ottawa REDBLACKS CFL team, and Ottawa Fury FC United Soccer League team.

Allow me to convey my best wishes to everyone in attendance for a productive and rewarding gathering, as well as to the visitors for a most enjoyable stay in Ottawa.
