Ocean Technology & Defence Sector focussed training


Offered in Lévis, Québec, from November 20th, 2019 to January 22nd, 2020. 

To support companies aiming to grow sales in the Ocean Technology and Defence sectors, content specific to the realities of those supply chains was developed.  A series of engaging, interactive workshops facilitated by experts with experience on both sides of the supply chain was capped off by a final simulated Meet the Buyer event, where companies networked and put new knowledge and skills to work.

This program was offered in partnership with the Association of Davie Shipbuilding Suppliers and was made possible thanks to support from the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund
