Canada arms dealers military supplies logistics manufacturers weapons war profits Ukraine business corruption

Major arms manufacturers have been meeting with the Canadian government to replenish this country’s armouries and boost supplies for military aid, highlighting the ongoing industry boon fuelled by the war in Ukraine.

On Monday, Defence Minister Anita Anand announced that she had met with Munitions Supply Program (MSP) partners for a "meeting of the Munitions Industry Roundtable (MIR).” Anand stated: “As the war in Ukraine carries on, we must continue to work with the defence industry to ensure the readiness of our Canadian Armed Forces and support for our partners.”

MSP was established in the 1970s in order to “secure a national capability for the supply of critical ammunition, small arms and associated equipment to the CAF.” The program is managed by Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC), and supported by the Department of National Defence (DND) and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED).

The program allows the Canadian government to procure military supplies from five “predetermined Canadian companies.”  (more...)
