Launch of the fourth astronaut recruitment campaign in Canada

Canada is looking for exceptional people to push the boundaries of science, innovation and space exploration.

Today, the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, and the Minister responsible for the CSA, launched Canada’s fourth astronaut recruitment campaign. The CSA is seeking the next generation of space explorers to pave the way for potential future space missions.

The Agency is accepting applications from June 17 to August 15, and expects to announce selected candidates in Summer 2017. This next class of Canadian astronaut candidates will start their training at NASA in August 2017.

The CSA will select two qualified astronaut candidates from a diverse pool of Canadian citizens with a wide variety of backgrounds. Those selected after the first round of evaluation will take part in a rigorous selection process that will last almost a year.
