Oceans Gala Dinner Keynote Speaker

Col. Jeremy Hansen

Canadian Space Agency

Jeremy Hansen has been an astronaut with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) since 2009. He is an experienced CF-18 fighter pilot and, in 2017, he became the first Canadian to be entrusted with leading a NASA astronaut class, which means that he was in charge of training the astronaut candidates from the United States and Canada.

While he awaits a flight assignment to a space mission, Jeremy is keeping busy. He represents the CSA at NASA, speaks to young Canadians, works at NASA’s Mission Control Center as capcom—the voice between the ground and the International Space Station—and continues his training.
