Canada and France expand space cooperation

The Canadian Space Agency has signed a cooperative agreement with France’s space agency, the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales.

The agreement, a follow-up to one signed in 2011, will expand cooperation in remote sensing of the ocean and Arctic climate, healthcare R&D, and space-based search and rescue systems.

"We have forged ever closer cooperative ties with our Canadian colleagues in recent years, as illustrated by our joint activities,” said CNES president Jean-Yves Le Gall. “Today, we are stepping up our joint efforts and renewing our ambitions to do more together in areas as diverse as climate studies, healthcare and search-and-rescue applications."
