The Canadian Space Agency coordinates all civil space-related activities for the Government of Canada. In support of this role, the Government Related Initiatives Program (GRIP) focuses on Earth observation systems for land, ocean, and the atmosphere to enhance government services.
By providing technical guidance for the optimum use of space-based technologies supported by the Government of Canada, GRIP helps derive the maximum benefit from investment by Canada and the international Earth observation community.
GRIP is administered along three strategic themes:
- Resource & land Use management
- Security & foreign policy
