Controlled Goods Program

The Controlled Goods Program (CPG) is a Federal Government Program designed to strengthen Canada’s defense trade controls.  Legislated by the Defense Production Act (DPA) and the Controlled Goods Regulation (CGR), the mission of the program is to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and conventional weapons by regulating and controlling the examination, possession and transfer in Canada of controlled goods and/or technology. Specifically, these items fall under Group 2, Hem 5504 and Group 6 of the Export Control List.

 

Individuals undertaking research in which you possess, transfer or examine controlled goods and/or controlled technology must conform to the Federal Controlled Goods Regulations (CGR) by registering with the Controlled Goods Directorate (CGD).  Registration will be through the Designated Official (DO) of the University in Environmental and Occupational Health Support Services (EOHSS), and includes a security assessment that takes into account the following over the five years prior to the person’s consent to such an assessment: personal references, criminal history, place of residence, employment and educational history.
