Telesat has welcomed the release of the Space Advisory Board’s report: Canada’s Future in Space: What We Heard, and is particularly pleased to see a number of important recommendations reflected in the report that include the need to establish a whole of government, new space policy for Canada that is funded and supports, promotes and prioritizes the Canadian space sector.

Telesat is also pleased to see an emphasis on procuring, to the extent possible, space services from Canadian industry (rather than acquiring, launching and operating space systems) to meet government needs.
