Our mission is to foster Western Canada’s ability to fully participate in the Space Economy.

Western Canada leading in space resources

Western Canada has a long history of surviving and thriving in harsh environments. As humanity pushes further and further into space, the techniques, processes, and way of life that comes second nature to us in Western Canada will provide invaluable to the space exploration effort. We aim to create a strong space ecosystem so that generations of Canadian and work with and prosper from the resources we develop.

Spin out technology for Earth

At Ascension West, we believe that the technology bound for the Moon and Mars can have a positive impact on Earth. The efforts to grow food, recycle water, harvest materials, and support life in space has a direct application in Western and Northern Canada. We want to improve the standard of living on Earth using the technology that is enabling the exploration of space.
