The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project is an international collaboration to build the world’s largest radio telescope. The SKA aims to conduct groundbreaking science that will transform our understanding of the Universe and of the laws of fundamental physics.

The SKA will monitor the sky in unprecedented detail and map it hundreds of times faster than any current facility. Canada has been involved in the SKA project since its earliest stages, and continues to play a leading role in the advanced design, technology and research activities needed to create this exciting facility.
