As an industry leader, Lockheed Martin Canada aims to support its employees, customers, supply chain, industrial and academic partners, and the wider community. We are proud to play an active role in helping to strengthen the quality of life in Canada and the local communities where we live and work.
Lockheed Martin Canada focuses its philanthropic efforts and support in two key areas:
- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education
- Military and veteran causes
As part of our efforts to educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians, Lockheed Martin Canada’s approach to STEM outreach includes support for programs, events, and campaigns that focus on student engagement and achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity.
Lockheed Martin Canada is also dedicated to supporting service members with programs that improve their lives and the lives of their families, enhance educational and training opportunities, and honour their selfless duty to our country.
These causes reflect the values embodied in our employees and are intrinsic to the Lockheed Martin culture. In addition to providing donations and sponsorships, the company encourages its workforce to volunteer both time and expertise to supporting local community groups and actively encourages employee fundraising events and activities. Stated simply, our employees care. They are talented professionals, but it is their genuine concern for others that helps make Lockheed Martin Canada an exceptional contributor to our communities.

Located within Lockheed Martin Canada’s newest facility in Ottawa, the Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre is the company’s latest initiative to invest in state-of-the-art facilities and infrastructure across Canada to accelerate technology development and promote a thriving culture of innovation.
The Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre will complement the company’s world-leading Maritime Advanced Training and Test Site (MATTS) in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. It will leverage the advanced engineering skills and technology honed at the MATTS in the development of Canada’s modernized Halifax Class Combat Systems and associated trainers.
Lockheed Martin Canada’s future success depends on a constant supply of highly trained and capable technical talent.
The Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre is part of our commitment to STEM education, helping to educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians. In addition to serving as a demonstration and collaboration area with customers and industry, the Lockheed Martin IMPACT Centre is a venue to meet with students and community partners and explore how to work together to advance STEM education.
