Canada's astronauts embody the spirit of the Canadian Space Program and their courage and commitment are a source of inspiration to many. Their main job is to develop, support, train and fly on international space missions, and their unique experience helps further scientific research and advanced technology development.

They also play a key role in raising awareness about Canada's activities in space and inspiring youth to explore the fields of science and technology.
