The findings of the arm's-length aerospace review were unveiled in Ottawa Thursday.
"We need to redouble our efforts to develop the aerospace technologies of the future and secure our place in global markets and supply chains," former cabinet minister and review head David Emerson said.
Emerson believes Canada has "every reason to be proud of its status as a global aerospace power," but said new technologies should be developed to compete with emerging players like China and India.
He also called for a "reset" of the Canadian Space Program and for a funding boost of $30 million over three years to support the work of the Canadian Space Agency.
