Established in March 1989, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) was created through an Act of Parliament, proclaimed in December 1990. The Agency has a status equivalent to that of a Department of the Government of Canada and reports to Parliament through the Minister of Industry.
The Canadian Space Agency directs its resources and activities through four key Programs:
Early- and mid-career scientists, policy makers from developing countries with background of space technologies or disaster mitigation as an advantage; skills of fluent English communication required.
Participation is limited to 20 people, and female applicants will be given priority. Selected applicants will be provided with round-trip airfares between their home countries and Beijing, as well as local expenses during the workshops.
The training workshop will bring together early- and mid-career scientists from developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America wishing to increasescientific knowledge of disaster mitigation and space technology. The policy makers and managers from developing countries are also welcome to apply for participating in the workshop. As the number is limited to 20 people, only those who are qualified can be selected as formal participants. Female applicants will be given priority.
