Ottawa Branch

Welcome to the Ottawa Branch

The mission of the Ottawa Branch is to support local CASI members in their professional career development through monthly events, resources and educational tools. The branch also contributes to national activities like inter-branch initiatives, section development, mentoring and continuing professional development. Close associations are maintained with the academic institutions in Ottawa. We love to organize MemberTour events which give priority access to CASI members to special facilities and people but still provide a good talk to the general public who are welcome to join us – but encouraged to join CASI right away!

Any members of the Canadian aerospace community willing to participate can contact the branch co-chairs: Omer Majeed at 613-883-5045 or Jeff Bird at 613-716-4483.
