Canada has exported products in
Category 2-14 to six countries in the Middle East & North Africa
The above summary -- by the
Coalition to Oppose the Arms Trade (COAT) for its web report "Canadian
Military Exports to the Middle East and North Africa" -- was derived from a detailed
description of this category of munitions published by the Department of
Foreign Affairs and
International Trade Canada (DFAIT) in a
A Guide to Canada’s Export Controls (June 2006).
This DFAIT document describes seven
different groups of products on the "Export Control List" whose export is
"controlled" by the Government of Canada. One of these seven
groups, known as "Group 2" or the "Munitions List," is
comprised of 22 categories of military products. These are the
categories of products whose export is documented in a series of DFAIT documents
published since 1990, called Export of Military Goods from Canada.
