Joint Strike Fighter Program

Canada has been a partner in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program since 1997. The Program is unique, as is its approach to industrial participation. All JSF Partner countries agreed to forego offset programs, with work instead awarded on a "best value" basis, meaning that companies must offer competitive technologies at competitive prices to win F-35 work.

Canada's participation in the Program provides companies in Canada the opportunity to compete for design/development, production and sustainment contracts on the F-35 aircraft and associated systems, taking advantage of current and emerging value chains.
