Become a Member of Unmanned Systems Canada

It’s not every day that individuals, businesses and institutions can play a role in shaping emerging industries – especially one that has the potential to impact so many lives. Unmanned vehicles are innovating operations for everyone from farmers to foresters, energy companies to educators, and media-creators to miners.

Unmanned Systems Canada is a national, member-focused non-profit organization that promotes the advancement of Canada’s unmanned vehicle industry. USC is supported by participation from dedicated members and a volunteer Board of Directors.
We are financially supported by membership dues, events and sponsorships.

Our mission:

  • To promote public awareness, education and appreciation for the Canadian unmanned vehicle systems community to its members, to Canadians and to international organizations in our sector.
  • To represent the interests of the unmanned vehicle systems community including industry, academia, government, military, and the Canadian public.
  • To promote and facilitate the growth of the Canadian unmanned vehicle systems community through education, advocacy, and exchange of ideas and technologies.

The growing success of Canada’s unmanned vehicle sector – in the air, on the ground, and in the water – indicates that Canadians are finding solutions to make our companies, organizations and agencies more innovative at home and more competitive on the international stage.
