The Joint Strike Fighter / F-35 Program: A Canadian Technology Policy Perspective
MetadataShow full item record
The Canadian F-35 procurement represents the largest peacetime acquisition of new aircraft for Canadian forces since the Korean War. Securing industrial benefits from military procurement is essential for advanced industrialized nations, and it has long been Canadian industrial policy to do so. For the CF-18 program, “offset” contracts were negotiated, valued at 2.7 billion Canadian dollars (CAD) or 110 percent of the worth of the initial contract.
