CAE's Defence and Security business unit has expanded operations in Australia by opening a new office in Canberra, the capital city of Australia.

The new office was inaugurated during a visit from the Honourable Christopher Pyne, Minister for Defence Industry, and Ian Bell, CAE's Vice President and General Manager, Asia-Pacific/Middle East. The new CAE office is located in Brindabella Park.

Across CAE's defence, civil aviation, and healthcare business units, the company employs approximately 300 people at almost 20 sites across Australia.

"Australia is one of CAE's home markets and the opening of our new Canberra office signals a new chapter in our commitment to the Australian Defence Force," said Bell. "We will now be co-located with Defence in the heart of Australia's capital, which we believe will help us be more available and responsive in supporting the training needs and requirements of the ADF."
