DEFSEC Atlantic strives to address the concerns and challenges of our attendees, especially those of our core constituents, the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) of Atlantic Canada. To create awareness and connection between our exhibitors and the talent being developed in the region, we started the Academic Day of Connection in 2017.

The Day introduces graduating students from relevant disciplines in our post-secondary institutions to our attendees in the trade show setting. Exposing faculty and staff to the opportunities within our industry and region helps retain youth and talent, addressing a universal challenge in today's workplace.

The Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defence Association (ACADA) has, as one it its key mandates, a keen interest and responsibility to support workforce development. The content, delivery and promotion of the ACADA Academic Day of Connection will be their focus on Thursday, October 5

The activities of the day have been generously sponsored by Thales Canada. The specific schedule for each participating group are being communicated with each of the respective contacts.
