Canadian military goods suppliers up in arms over export permit delays under Liberals

The backlogged permitting process has caused delays across Canada’s $10B armaments industry and cost companies millions in voided contracts

Mounting frustrations over the delays has led to calls for Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne to rectify the situation. Companies who spoke to the National Post link the delays with a push by the Liberal government in 2017 to place deeper scrutiny on Canadian arms deals, following reports that Canadian military equipment had been used by a Saudi-led coalition in a war that killed thousands of Yemeni civilians.

Canadian vendors argue most of their equipment is being exported to allied countries, and typically used for defence-related activities.
