Sub-activity 1.1.4

International Opportunities for Canadian Earth Sciences

Description

Without the initial presence of the Canadian Government, Canadian earth sciences industry and related stakeholders have difficulty securing international opportunities in geoscience and geomatics. NRCan implements projects or studies with international entities to demonstrate Canadian expertise and know-how which can be used to support sound policies/decisions concerning natural resource development. As a result of this positioning of Canadian earth sciences internationally, foreign market opportunities are increased for Canadian industry and related stakeholders.
