Attending as a Government Employee

If you are attending DEFSEC Atlantic presented by the Atlantic Canada Aerospace & Defence Association as an ACTIVELY WORKING employee of a government department, then you will be registered under this category. Each individual in this category, regardless of whether multiple employees of that department will be attending, will need to register individually using our online system.

It is important to note that a Government Employee Pass does NOT include access to any meals.

There will be no on-site lunches this year. There are well over 20 restaurants just within a 3-block radius of the Halifax Convention Centre and even more just outside of that distance. We also expect to again have Partner Restaurants where if you show your DEFSEC Atlantic name badge, they will offer a discount.  Click here to view the list of participating restaurants.
