Commercial Space 101 (1-day Workshop) Description

The CSCA’s “Commercial Space 101” workshop takes place within the CSCA Canadian Smallsat Symposium. It is for professionals from all sectors to discover how the space sector will be the catalyst to pioneer revolutionary growth within and into other industries. The workshop will offer an overview of the space domain, in clear language; the economic opportunities, in Canada and abroad; the link between space and ALL sectors; case studies and the underlying knowledge necessary to consider the space sector as a profitable and commercially advantageous.

The exponential growth of the global commercial space sector in recent years has attracted the attention of both public and private investors worldwide. However, for those who are unfamiliar with the space domain or commercial space enterprise, initiation into this industry can be a daunting mission. This workshop will provide the tools to navigate the sector, uncovering opportunities revolutionizing other industries.

In 2017, after considerable consultation, the Space Advisory Board issued a recommendation report,  Consultations on Canada’s Future in Space: What We Heardto provide economic growth and make Canada more competitive economy on a global scale.

The workshop is geared toward newcomers to the space sector, demonstrating that Canadian commercial space is now accessible to mainstream business. The program is designed to provide an overview of commercial space, its application to a multitude of other sectors, in addition to focusing on key considerations and topics specifically related to doing business with the use of space assets, both in orbit and on earth.
