What If I Want To Find Out More Info About The Event?

Since 2003, Unmanned Systems Canada / Systèmes Télécommandés Canada (USC-STC) has represented the interests of entrepreneurs, businesses, students, academia, industry, and government organizations working in the aerial, ground and marine remotely-piloted and unmanned vehicle systems sector.

As Canada’s national industry association, we are engaged in multiple capacities: as the voice of the industry at policy tables; as a networking and research-sharing platform; as an inspiration for post-secondary students through scholarships and two Annual Student Competitions, and; as leaders working to increase diversity and inclusion across our sector.

Our ‘Unmanned Canada’ Conference and Trade Shows are the nexus of these many roles. Now in our 17th year, this event has become the “must attend” show for manufacturers, service providers, researchers and regulators in Canada. Whether you’d like to become a Member, attend as an Exhibitor, support us through Sponsorships, or attend as registered media – we’re happy to answer any questions.
