Working in Sudan

Over a two-year period, CCC played a vital role in meeting Canada’s commitment to promoting peace in Sudan’s Darfur region. CCC arranged for the supply of rotary and fixed wing air service and support, quickly responding to urgent requirements in an increasingly difficult environment. The initial project involved developing an RFP, running a competition, evaluating proposals and having aircraft delivered—all in a matter of weeks. CCC also provided the equipment and on-the-ground support needed to ensure flight crew safety and the availability of a reliable fuel supply at several remote posts. CCC’s quick turnaround on the project—and our precise knowledge of complex international supply arrangements—inspired the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) (presently known as GAC) to establish a memorandum of understanding with CCC to help meet Canada’s international policy objectives.
