Gowling WLG, an international law firm, reports that “As part of its 2019 election platform, the federal Liberals announced a plan for the creation of a new Crown agency that would be responsible for conducting procurements on behalf of the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces, dubbed “Defence Procurement Canada” … [but] … Since the election, few details have been released about Defence Procurement Canada although it may have a structure to a similar Crown corporation: Defence Construction Canada.” Defence Construction Canada was established in 1951 with a mandate “to meet the infrastructure and environmental needs of the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (DND/CAF) by providing quality services. DCC’s mission is to deliver and maintain infrastructure and environmental projects and services, and provide full lifecycle infrastructure support, required for the defence of Canada.” Defence Construction Canada is a Crown corporation, it’s clients are the Department of National Defence and the Communications Security Establishment which is administered (loosely) by DND.
