Landmarks

since 2006

2006

Quebec Premier Jean Charest, accompanied by Minister of Labour and Minister of Economic Development Canada, Mr. Jean-Pierre Blackburn, announce the creation of CTA with BRP President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. José Boisjoli and President of the Université de Sherbrooke, Mr. Bruno-Marie Béchard, .

 

2009

Production starts on the first technology designed for BRP—LFI technology—which reduces the production time for personal watercraft hulls from 4 hours to 6 minutes.

 

 

2010

A $11.3 million project is announced to develop a hybrid Can-Am Spyder roadster for BRP with the financial support of the Automotive Partnership Canada (APC) over 4 years.

Production starts on the SE5 semi-automatic transmission for the Can-Am Spyder roadster.  CTA designed, built and tested the first prototypes of this transmission.

 

2011

Contracts totaling $5.6 million are announced to develop new generations of lunar and Mars exploration vehicles for the Canadian Space Agency and Macdonald, Dettwiler & Associates.

 

2012

Production starts on an electric version of the Can-Am Commander, a specialized electric side-by-side vehicle developed at CTA. This announcement once again confirms CTA’s role as a strategic developer of specialized vehicles and novel technologies for BRP and industrial customers.

2017

CTA the BRP engineering team develop a new internal combustion engine starting technology named SHOT.  The technology is applied to the company’s Ski-Doo snowmobiles and is awarded third place in the Performance Technology category of the 2018 Edison Awards.

Launch of the ATLAS project aiming at developing a processes and methodologies for the developement of lightweight structures.  The research program regroups NSERC, PRIMA Québec, Université de Sherbrooke, BRP, CTA and Université Laval, as well as Rio Tinto, Shawinigan Aluminium and Verbom partners from the aluminium industry.  Investments for this project represnet 4,9 M$ over four years.

 

2018

CTA, Brio Innovation, NGC Aérospatiale, Optis Ingénierie and Zénith Altitude collaborate with the American company Unither on the development of a concept electric drone named EOPA (Electrically-Powered Optionally-Piloted Powered-Lift Aircraft).  The aircraft will assume transportation between laboratory and hospital or organ implants.

 

2019

BRP unveiled six electric vehicle concepts in which CTA actively participated by developing the electric powertrain, from battery to motor including energy management and controls.
