Online Registration System Now Live!

To register online, click on the button above and then select one of the "Government Pass" options under the SELECT YOUR ATTENDEE CATEGORY dropdown, depending on whether you will be on-site attending the entire event or just one of the days OR attending virtually.

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 or receptions.
