Our history
in Canada

BAE Systems in Canada. Our heritage in Canada dates back to 1911 if you trace some of our legacy businesses and their mergers and acquisitions. 
Canadian Hawk
BAE Systems’ aviation links in Canada include Avro Canada, which produced the Avro Arrow, as well companies such as De Havilland Canada and Hawker Siddeley Aviation.
 
De Havilland Canada Headquarters
We opened our Ottawa office in the late 90s to support Canada's submarine program and continue to do so.  Today, we have a number of other business units operating from this office including Applied IntelligenceNaval ShipsMaritime Services and our Naval Weapon Systems business.
 
BAE Systems products currently in service in Canada include Hawk training aircraft, M777 Lightweight Towed Howitzers, BV206 all-terrain vehicles and 57mm naval guns on the Halifax class frigates. Halifax’s Irving Shipbuilding also announced the acquisition in August 2015 of the Mk 38 25mm gun system for the Royal Canadian Navy’s Arctic Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS) program.
 
We also have a strong presence in Toronto, where our Applied Intelligence business provides information intelligence solutions to government and commercial customers. Canada has a significant global financial sector, and the demand here for cutting-edge cloud-based solutions like ours is high. We already work with the major banks and insurers in Canada to protect and enhance their business operations in the connected world. Our solutions combine large-scale data exploitation, 'intelligence-grade' security and complex services and solutions integration.
