Canada’s Space Economy
Ottawa, ON, Canada
Canada’s economy is supported by an invisible infrastructure high above the Earth. Space science and technology has dramatically changed our country since the launch of Alouette-1 in 1962. From the way we communicate across Canada and around the globe, the way we track and process financial transactions, to how we monitor the Arctic, our natural resources and critical infrastructure. Space satellites and their applications have played an important part of Canada’s (and the world’s) economy. At the same time, Canada’s domestic space industry includes space manufacturers, satellite operators, the value-added sector for space data and “Commercial Space” or “New Space” entrepreneurs.
