No worries i knew what you meant. But contracted through America or not most of the equipment, was built in Canada. and R&D was shared between the company as a whole by both Canadian and American engineers, scientists etc. If Canada buys a new Contract from any of these companies, it is through there Canadian Firms, Built by Canadians, Not there Origin American firm. Canada is one of the very few Nations that have such a close relation With the USA, when it comes Military R&D, which is one of the few reasons why Canada's armed forces can keep up and maneuver so easily with the Americans.
