2018 Conference Theme: Canadian Security and Defence in the New World (dis)Order

The Conference of Defence Associations and the CDA Institute would like to send our joint appreciation to the decision makers from the Canadian Armed Forces, Department of National Defence, Public Safety, business, defence and security industry and Academia for joining us for the 2018 edition of the Ottawa Conference on Security and Defence – the largest public conference of its kind in Canada.

The Conferences boasted valuable networking opportunities, relevant debates and  an informative forum from a Canadian and foreign policy point of view.

The success is thanks to all the participants, speakers, moderators, exhibitors and sponsors who supported the event and shared their time and talents over a very reward two day experience for all those in attendance.

The 2019 dates, conference theme and enhanced exhibitor program will be released shortly.
