Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones): Applications and Investment and Collaboration Opportunities between Canada and Israel

10 November 2020

On November 10 we held the Maple & Honey Forum special presentation on drones, focusing on commercial and non-commercial applications and investment and collaboration opportunities between Canada and Israel. This webinar was hosted by our partner Aviram Hazak  and two of the heads of Bennett Jones’ Canada-Israel initiative Ted Shoub with Elad Travis.

On the webinar we discussed:

  • Commercial use of drones: opportunities for monitoring of mines and forests, infrastructure (oil and gas), utility and power, agriculture and delivery of goods to remote locations;
  • Military/emergency service use of drones: opportunities for security, patrol, surveillance, policing, search and rescue and fire-fighting;
  • Opportunities for private equity and venture capital to invest in Israeli and Canadian drone companies;
  • Joint venture, R&D and collaboration opportunities on drones between Canada and Israel.
