Each of these companies has contributed to the development and production of the F-35 Lightning II, resulting in hundreds of Canadian jobs that began more than 15 years prior to the projected procurement of their first aircraft. There are more than 70 companies with $450M contracted and $10B in opportunities over the life of the partnership.

Lockheed Martin values the F-35 partnership with Canadian industry over the past decade, said Steve Bryan, vice president, F-35 Program Integration and Business Development, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. The Canadian Government positioned industry to be successful early in the program and we now deliver every F-35 with Canadian components.
