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 contributes to national activities like inter-branch initiatives, section development, mentoring and professional development. Close associations are maintained with academic institutions in Ottawa and the Branch likes to organize site visits at various facilities in the NCR. We give priority access to CASI members for these tours where we get to meet interesting people but still provide a good talk to the general public who are welcome to join us – but encouraged to join CASI!

Any members of the Canadian aerospace community willing to participate can contact the branch co-chairs listed below.

The Ottawa Branch Workspace is open to any Member of CASI.
