Canada has eliminated the Boeing F/A-18 Block III Super Hornet from its Future Fighter Capability Project (FFCP) competition, leaving the Lockheed Martin F-35A Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) and the Saab Gripen E as the finalists.

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) said on 1 December that proposals were rigorously assessed on elements of capability, cost, and economic benefits. The evaluation also included an assessment of economic impact. A PSPC spokesman declined to say why it eliminated the Block III Super Hornet, other than that all proposals were subject to the same evaluation criteria with oversight by an independent fairness monitor.

Over the coming weeks, Canada will finalise the next steps in the process. Based on further analysis of the two remaining bids, this could involve proceeding to final negotiations with the top-ranked bidder or entering into a competitive dialogue. Here, the two remaining bidders would be provided an opportunity to improve their proposals.
