CME Export Training Events for Canadian Businesses

Canadian exporters received good news earlier this month when Statistics Canada announced that national exports rose by 1.5% in April. This momentum was largely attributed to rising prices (1.1%) and an increase in export volumes (0.5%). What’s better still is that the Canadian dollar continues to rebound and is, at the time of this article’s posting, nearing 80 cents US. Canadian companies who are actively exporting will continue to see their profits lifted into the future as oil prices rebound and production returns to normal in Alberta.

Based on the 2016 Manufacturers’ Outlook survey, 34% of Canadian manufacturers expect to enter new export markets or expand existing export markets over the next three years. This is an important strategy for growing manufacturers, since export growth is providing new opportunities and revenue potential.

Forward-thinking manufacturers should begin to implement export strategies now to ensure that they can take advantage of these export growth opportunities over the coming years. Fortunately, a wide range of support services exist and can soften the learning curve for businesses who are looking to begin exporting. One of the best resources to become more comfortable with exporting are Export Success webinars hosted by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME).

Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters is Canada’s largest trade and manufacturing industry association. As the voice of Canadian manufacturers and exporters, they provide advocacy and leadership within the Canadian economy to strengthen industries’ global business performance.

As part of their leadership mandate, the organization regularly hosts events across Canada to educate and support businesses who are seeking to start or grow exports.
