We recently updated our content on the Canada-European Space Agency (ESA) Cooperation Agreement in order to reflect the CSA's most recent financial commitments to various ESA programmes. You will find information on how to do business with ESA, including how to submit a bid under programs requiring a letter of support from the Canadian delegation to ESA.
Since 1979, the Canada-ESA Cooperation Agreement has enabled Canadian companies to bid on ESA contracts related to activities and programs in which Canada participates. Among other things, this cooperation fosters innovation and competitiveness; facilitates the participation of Canadian scientists in ESA missions; and allows Canada, the only non-European cooperating state, to be part of ESA's decision-making process.
For many Canadian companies and universities, Canada's investments in ESA programmes have resulted in job creation and acquisition of knowledge and skills. The Swarm mission and the development of the Proba-2 satellite are remarkable examples of the success of this collaboration.
