Canada Company has established a reputation among senior military leaders, media and many members of the business community as an exclusive, neutral platform for Canada’s top business leaders and the Canadian Armed Forces to engage in discussions around challenges facing the nation’s defence.

Our members recognize the essential role business can play in highlighting the contributions and sacrifices our military makes in order to protect our rights and freedoms.

Canada Company members are part of a group of prominent Canadians who proudly wear the “Many Ways to Serve” pin. Join the ranks of Canada Company today.

Member Benefits

Canada Company makes it possible for its members to interact with Canadian Armed Forces leaders. They are able to learn about the challenges and missions currently being managed by our men and women in uniform and lend their voices, expertise, and resources to ensure our troops are supported and championed.

At Canada Company, we offer our members a variety of benefits, including on-site activities that welcome participation in the rigorous training that our troops experience, and events that serve to broaden understanding of our distinct Canadian Armed Forces culture.

Captains of Industry Events

Our Captains of Industry exercises are designed so that members of the Canadian business community will meet soldiers and experience first hand components of their everyday life. These activities provide business community members with a sense of the wide array of equipment in use, the capabilities of Canadian Armed Forces members, and provide an opportunity for our business community to interact with our soldiers.

Highlights of past events have included day sails on Canadian Armed Forces frigates, transportation by Hercules aircraft; participation in displays of fire power including artillery, tanks, demolitions and smaller weapons, and many other unique experiences.

Mess Dinners

A traditional Mess Dinner is the high point of Mess life. By participating in a Mess Dinner you will have experienced over 200 years of customs, traditions, and rituals, which make for a unique dining experience.

Mess Dinners, while governed by formal rules of conduct, are a great way to experience a military tradition in a friendly and open manner. At a Mess Dinner, everyone will enjoy an evening socializing and dining in an atmosphere of camaraderie and history.

Speaking Engagements

Canada Company is proud to enable meaningful connections and foster real conversations amongst our Canadian business leaders and senior military leaders. In addition to our Strategic Knowledge Exchange events, Canada Company invites our members to regular speaking engagements and formal discussions between leaders of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Canadian business community. These engagements offer yet another opportunity for our key stakeholders to learn from one other.

In the past, Commanders of Task Force Afghanistan have talked to members of Canada Company about their experiences and their impression of the conflict, especially in Kandahar Province. We have also welcomed Lieutenant General Andrew Leslie, Commander of the Army (at the time), for a talk with our members.

Recognizing our civilian leaders, Canada Company members are also invited to speak to a military audience on their areas of expertise.
