If you are a follower of our blog, you have probably heard about a previous Export Market Access Closing Date for event funding in the first quarter of 2012. We have recently received word from the Export Market Access Homepage that they are currently accepting applications for projects that take place prior to June 30, 2012.
Small Business Funding for Global Market Expansion
The Export Market Access program is a small business funding grant that acts as a non-repayable grant to help Canadian SMEs gain notoriety in their global markets. The projects funded by this program should be aimed towards the improvement and development your company’s foreign market sales and contracts. This program provides a non-repayable grant up to $50k or 50% of a project. These funds will help to cover the costs such as wages, plain tickets, and trade show expenditures to help your business expand into global markets.
As mentioned before, the Export Market Access is currently accepting applications for trade shows whose spend ends on or before June 30, 2012. Businesses must apply at least 30 business days before their first project expenditures. For those who are interested in applying or learning more about the program, please visit our Export Market Access Inquiries Page. If you are interested in applying for or learning about other Government Funding programs, we recommend that you subscribe to our blog or contact Mentor Works, Canadian Government Funding Experts.
