Abstract
Recent indications are that allocations for Defence equipment acquisition programs will not be decided on the basis of military factors alone but also in consideration of the benefits accruing to national policy goals for social and economic development. The paper explores a number of the environmental factors which influence industrial growth in Canada. These include the dominance of the United States in Defence technology, uneven rates of economic growth and the influence of multinational firms in Canadian industry. Canadian factors include the environment for technological innovation, attitudes of Canadians, the government procurement process, and the conflicts which arise between policies for industrial expansion and those for the elimination of regional disparities.
