A Needs Analysis of Canada's First Responder Vendor Community
April 10, 2006

Companies in the advanced technology sector can now access an advance copy of a Needs Analysis of Canada's First Responder Vendor Community. The assessment provides the views of the vendors to the First Responder community - defined as first response emergency services such as fire, police and paramedics - regarding their potential needs and priorities of a planned Canadian Police Research Centre (CPRC).

The CPRC is a partnership among the National Research Council Canada (NRC), Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). It serves as a single, national focal point for technology research and development efforts in support of Canada's law enforcement community

One of the purposes of this research project conducted by CATAAlliance was to begin to provide a demographical and market-based understanding of the vendor community, as very little such data currently exists.

CATA is also continuing its work to develop comprehensive industry profiles for Canadian and international buyers of advanced technology products and services, and will offer ongoing business intelligence on specific industry trends, challenges, and new business opportunities for our members.
