Defence and ESG
Environmental, social and governance commitments that go above and beyond business as usual.
Military community support
As an active member of the military community, Calian donates to and participates in related organizations and charity events.
Military Family Doctor Network
Over 4,200 family members connected with a family doctor since 2016
Supporting Canada’s defence industry is more than delivering solutions for customers. It means supporting the defence community and the people in it. The Calian Military Family Doctor Network (MFDN) is a partnership with the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS) that connects doctors with military family members when they relocate across Canada.

Hiring veterans and military spouses
When it is time to transition to life as a civilian, Calian values the deep expertise and perspectives that veterans bring to our solutions—especially for defence customers—and hiring veterans and military spouses is our way of supporting military families.
Empowering veterans to drive mission success
More than 100 veterans hired annually
Veterans bring their years—sometimes decades—of experience to our solutions and become an essential part of delivery.
With technical knowledge in aerospace, electronics, cybersecurity, modelling and simulation and engineering, veterans bring a deep understanding of how defence clients use technology to achieve their mission.
Supporting a resilient defence community
More than 130 military spouses hired since 2016
Working to hire military spouses wherever we can across Canada is an important way that we show support for military families and the defence community. Matching skillsets to opportunities, we strive to give military spouses the best opportunities possible for career success and professional growth.
Engaging in research that matters
Calian partners with Canadian institutions and industry leaders in extensive research projects for military health and cybersecurity, fostering the next generation of defence professionals.
