Part of the three-year strategic plan for the Canadian Space Society developed in 2017 called for the formation of a Space Policy Committee as part of the SHAPE line of operation.*
This committee will consist of CSS members and involve quarterly discussions and annual meetings with a view to publishing an annual space policy statement for Canada.
Chaired by Wayne Ellis, Past-President of the Canadian Space Society, the formation of this committee marks the first milestone leading towards this strategic objective. Those interested in serving on this committee and helping to shape public policy are encouraged to contact Wayne directly at: [email protected] .
* The SHAPE line of operation is described as: We shape space policy, representing our membership and the public through activities that bring together members of the government, academia, and business.
