The Military-Industrial Complex in Canada

Listed author(s):
  • Lynne M. Pepall
  • Daniel M. Shapiro

This paper has two objectives. The first is to provide new evidence about Canadian firms which receive military contracts, and thus to define the extent and nature of the military-industrial complex (MIC) in Canada. The second is to examine some aspects of the public policy issues related to the MIC. The evidence indicates that the Canadian MIC mirrors the structure of Canadian industry in general to a large extent. It is highly concentrated, export-oriented and has significant degrees of foreign control. The authors' results also suggest that domestic military procurement may have been used to promote non-military objectives, particularly regional equality, but not in a consistent way.
