Innovation Showcase: Contracting with Canada

  • Room: Innovation Theater - Exhibit Floor, 2000 Aisle
Thursday, February 16, 2023: 10:10 AM - 10:30 AM


Speaker (confirmed)
Suzanne Wilkinson
Director, U.S. Operations
Canadian Commercial Corporation


In 1956, the United States and Canada signed the Defense Production Sharing Agreement (DPSA), naming Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) as Canada’s designated contracting authority for U.S. DoD requirements. The DPSA program operates similarly to the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program where Canada and the U.S. Government enter into Government-to-Government agreements to support U.S. and Canadian security interests, thus strengthening the North American defense industrial base and supply chain resiliency.

Contracting with Canada is governed by the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations DFARS 225.870 as well as other bi-lateral agreements. Contracts over the simplified acquisition threshold must be awarded through CCC.
