Defence and marine procurement

Public Services and Procurement Canada has the exclusive authority to acquire defence supplies of all kinds, including ships, on behalf of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Canadian Coast Guard. Tenders for procurement of defence related equipment and services can be found on the buyandsell.gc.ca website.

The Defence procurement strategy is leading the way on improving defence procurement for the Government of Canada.

As part of finding innovative and modern approaches for procurement modernization, government collaborated with industry to develop the ‘Principles for Managing Intellectual Property in Defence and Marine Procurement’, which will help improve defence procurement outcomes and advance the broader Canadian socio-economic agenda.

The Foreign Military Sales program of the United States (U.S.) government is a means for allies and partners of the U.S., including Canada, to acquire defence articles controlled under the U.S. Arms Export Control Act.
