Ottawa-based products and services company Calian Group has renewed a contract worth CAD 10 million (EUR 6.8 million) to provide military training support services for the Canadian Defence Academy (CDA) and Military Personnel Generation Group (MPGG), the company announced on 7 May 2024.

Under the contract Calian will deliver comprehensive academic and developmental support, clerical support, training support, instructional support and courseware development in relation to Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) training courses provided through the CDA and MPGG. The work will bolster critical training programs across Canada, elevating CAF operational readiness.

“We are excited and honoured to continue our partnership with CDA and MPGG in supporting the women and men of the Canadian Armed Forces,” Calian CEO Kevin Ford was quoted as saying in a compay press release. “Calian continues to invest in people and leading-edge technology that make us the ideal military training partner in Canada and worldwide.”

Calian has been providing services to MPGG since 2010 under three consecutive contracts and has delivered training solutions for the CAF for over 25 years.

Calian will drive training initiatives through design, delivery and administration, including development of cutting-edge eLearning programs, the company asserted.

“Delivering outstanding military education and training is in our DNA. We are effective in that mission because our team is made up of highly experienced professionals,” said Jay Ballard, Calian’s vice president for defence learning. “Our significant experience working alongside MPGG and CDA allows us to offer custom training initiatives that are tailor-made to their unique requirements.”
