Canadian Defense Industry Wants to Expand U.S.-Canada ITAR Arrangement Covering Canadian Dual-Nationals

The Ottawa Business Journal reports that Canada's leading aerospace and defense trade associations will ask the Canadian government to request the U.S. to expand the May 2007 arrangement between the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) and U.S. Department of State that permits DND employees holding secret-level security clearances, including dual nationals, to work on certain defense-related projects in Canada that are subject to the ITAR. The trade associations want the arrangement to be expanded to cover employees of private companies in Canada that hold secret-level security clearances.

The article notes that the "the dual-nationality issue has hampered Canadian defence and security firms for years because American International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) prohibit secure data from being exported to Canadian companies who employ certain workers – in particular, employees holding citizenship from countries the United States deems sponsors of terrorism or in non-compliance with nuclear or biological weapon treaties."
