What are ITBs?
Through the Canadian ITB policy, defence contractors are required to do an equal amount of business in Canada as their contract value. Currently, there are over $3.2 billion in potential opportunities for Canadian businesses that can be leveraged to fund R&D projects, grow your business and gain export work.
