An unnamed Canadian company attempted to sell missile technology to the Iranian government sometime in 2017, according to a Canadian government federal report released in June 2018. The company's export permit application was denied. The proposed sale was for materials related to the production of structural composites, pyrolytic deposition and densification, and structural materials, which falls under "missile technology" in Canada’s export classifications.
