The federal and provincial government offer a wide variety of support to Canadian businesses who wish to grow or start exporting to new markets. By attending the free Funding to Support Export Expansion webinar, you will learn about various government export funding programs that help businesses grow in export markets by providing business grants of up to $75K.
Canadian business owners may choose to expand internationally to access new markets, gain a competitive advantage, or diversify their business’s assets.
The attractive benefits of exporting to new markets don’t come without their fair share of setbacks as your business will need to be ready to adapt to the language and cultural differences of a new market, as well as changes to your shipping and manufacturing costs. Due to these challenges, the Canadian government has created funding programs, such as CanExport, that are designed to help businesses expand into new markets.
If your business has considered selling goods or services outside of Canada, find out how you can take advantage of Canadian Government funding programs by registering for our upcoming webinar.
