“Canada’s Next Space Generation” will speak to Canada’s future in space and provide a spotlight on the up-and-coming leaders of Canada’s space sector. By highlighting the next generation of industry leaders, space engineers, scientists, and astronauts, the CSS Summit will explore the changing nature of the global space industry and the evolving nature of how we incorporate space into our daily lives.
The 17th Annual Summit will provide a venue to discuss upcoming commercial space activities (e.g. space-mining), global trends (e.g. SmallSat constellations in Low-Earth Orbit) and future destinations that are being planned (i.e. Moon, Mars, and Asteroids). The key message of the Ottawa Summit will be, “Canadians are ready for take-off – from building new technologies, leading science missions, creating start-ups or innovative applications, Canadians will be there to push the limits of space”.
Discounts available for CSS Members and Students.

The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is pleased to confirm the dates for the next Canadian Space Exploration Workshop (CSEW 2016): November 24-25, 2016. The Workshop will take place in downtown Montreal; however, the final venue has still not been confirmed. We are very hopeful that you will be able to attend and request that you save the dates in your calendars.
The theme of the workshop is “Canadian Space Exploration: Science and Space Health Priorities for 2025 and Beyond”. CSEW 2016 will provide the opportunity for you, our stakeholder community, to directly engage in the process of renewing the CSA’s space exploration science and space health priorities as described in the final report produced following the 6th Canadian Space Exploration Workshop (CSEW6).
