Calian Group (TSX:CGY) has locked in another contract to continue providing e-learning services to the Department of National Defence.

The renewed deal, worth $17 million, will see the Ottawa-based company develop and support courseware projects for the Army Learning Support Centre in New Brunswick for the next three years. Calian has worked with the ALSC on e-learning programs to get students mission-ready since 2007.

The firm also works with the Canadian army on simulation training, having also renewed a nine-year, $170-million deal with DND this past year. The Department of National Defence represents Calian’s largest customer.

Earlier this month, Calian announced it had hit 70 consecutive quarters of net profit, reporting revenues of $83.4 million for the three-month period ending March 31.
