BMI View: Canadian defence spending has been steadily increasing as the country has sought to address concerns over maritime sovereignty and the protection of natural resources. However, cost saving measures are being considered and in some cases implemented so that the long term goals are met. The reduction in short term defence spending could cause delays for certain much-needed procurements to bring the country in line with its NATO peers' spending in anticipation of deployments to counter ISIS movements.

Current plans are to upgrade, enhance and to extend the life of their current military technology. The CF-18 jet-fighters will now have upgrades to extend their life. This is due to a firm decision still not being made as to whether Canada will procure the 65 F-35 Lightning-II war planes in line with the Joint Strike Programme. However, with the US currently considering cuts in their defence spending this has caused speculation that the contract for Canada's new fighter will not go to Lockheed-Martin but be placed up for auction. With no decision made, the outcome of what will replace the ageing CF-18's will most likely not be made until after the general election later in 2015.
