Printer Friendly versionPrinter Friendly


Markham, ON - February 14, 2013 - DMTI Spatial Inc. (DMTI), Canada’s leading provider of Location Intelligence solutions, announced today that it has been awarded the Domestic Vector Data Set contract by Public Works and Government Service Canada (PWGSC).  The initial one year contract includes an option for the Government of Canada to extend the term by up to four additional one year periods, for a total potential value of $2.9 million.  DMTI was awarded this contract after an extensive competitive procurement process and evaluation period, and was chosen due to the high quality of its CanMap® geospatial datasets.

This contract provides various federal government departments with critical location-based information to help make important policy and planning decisions affecting the lives of all Canadians.  Departments initially using DMTI’s data under this contract include the Department of National Defence, Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.  DMTI’s data has been of assistance to numerous government initiatives in the past, including supporting the operations of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics and the 2010 G20 and G8 Summits in Muskoka and Toronto. 

“This major contract win demonstrates confidence in our data from the highest levels of government,” said John Fisher, DMTI Spatial Chairman and CEO.  “DMTI’s data has proven to be of tremendous value to the government of Canada in the past and we are pleased to continue to support their needs on making key decisions.  This selection in the Federal Government’s competitive process underscores DMTI Spatial’s leadership role in Location Intelligence solutions.”
