Become a Partner

The CDA Institute is a one-stop shop for expertise, research and analysis on Canadian security, defence, and foreign policy. If your company is keen on keeping Canadians informed about threats and taking part in conversations regarding how we can work together as a whole of society to address them, then you belong in our community of stakeholders.

Partnering with the CDA Institute is a year-long or multi-year commitment that guarantees your company will not miss a single event or opportunity to engage. It means positioning your business at the centre of Canada’s defence and security community and engaging proactively in thought leadership and solutions thinking on defence and security policy.

Our Strategic Partners enjoy VIP access including private by-invitation only receptions, while also benefiting from excellent on-stage and on-screen visibility including introducing panels and running ads on our displays while thousands of highly targeted guests in Canada’s defence & security sector are watching. Our areas of programming include:

  • The Ottawa Conference on Security and Defence
  • The Vimy Gala
  • The Montreal Climate Security Summit
  • Chairman’s Circle Dinners
  • Force Development Series & Expert Series
  • Young Professionals Programme (also an excellent place for our partners to engage in mentorship opportunities and to spot and recruit up-and-coming talent.)

Our Two Partnership Levels

Through a system of two tiers – Strategic Level and Operational Level, it is possible for your business to align the impact of your investment with us to your business development objectives. We also offer opportunities for partners to choose areas of programming in which to enjoy exclusive co-branding.
