Recruitment Campaign

In March 2008, for the third time only in our country's history, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) asked Canadians: "Do you have the right stuff?". More than 5300 candidates submitted their application to become Canada's new astronauts, but only two of them were chosen after a very long national recruitment process.
