Our mission

The Green Aviation Research and Development Network (GARDN) is a non-profit organization created in 2009 with funding from the Business-Led Network of Centres of Excellence (BL-NCE) of the federal government and Canadian aerospace industry.

GARDN’s mission is to help support and increase Canada’s competitiveness in the aerospace industry by reducing the environmental footprint of the next generation of aircraft, engines and avionics systems developed in the country.

Our projects

Since 2009, we’ve built a portfolio of over 35 R&D projects to reduce the environmental impact of a new generation of engines, structures and systems by the aerospace industry.

Our members

The GARDN community brings together more than 50 companies, universities, colleges and research centres from the Canadian aviation industry that collaborate on green projects.
