Research & Technology

Recognizing how critical technology is to the success and growth of our industry, the Board of Directors chartered our R&T Committee. The committee is comprised of representatives from government, academia, OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers and SMEs. Through our Beyond the Barriers initiative, our mission is to serve our community by bringing together organizations from different levels of the aerospace technology and supply chain to facilitate meaningful and directed collaborations that will result in enhanced competitiveness and capability across the Ontario aerospace sector. Our Annual R&T Day is supported by quarterly events to engage all members of the community.

OAC Ontario Aerospace Research & Technology Source Book is a unique new tool only available to members highlighting Funding and Academic Partners to increase the number of new projects and success of our members’ R&T activities.

OAC takes great pride in representing CARIC as the Ontario Regional Office – we invite you to visit our CARIC page to learn more.
