Celebrating Canadians in Space

Did you know: Canada was the third country to launch a satellite back in 1962 (after USA and USSR)!

Canadians have played a long and integral part in the space exploration sector. We highlight past and present professionals from across the country. These featured professionals come from diverse backgrounds, study and work in a range of areas including research, innovation, industry, and government. 

Where possible, we directly reached out and asked direct questions. Some professionals have also participated in our virtual speaker series. Click on their names to browse through each profile and learn more about what they work on, and how they got interested in pursuing space exploration as a career.
