16 Jun CanExport
On 5 January 2016, Global Affairs Canada launched CanExport, a new export development program to support SMEs seeking to develop export opportunities and markets, especially high-growth emerging markets.
CanExport is a five-year, $50-million program that provides financial support for a wide range of export marketing activities to support international business development. CanExport complements NRC-IRAP’s existing efforts to support the global growth of Canadian firms and provides a great opportunity to connect NRC-IRAP’s business and innovation expertise to Global Affairs Canada international network and resources.
CanExport is being delivered by the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) of Global Affairs Canada, in partnership with NRC-IRAP. Specifically, TCS will complete the assessments of the applications, determine the level of funding, and be the point of contact for all questions pertaining to the Program. NRC-IRAP will administer and manage the contribution agreements centrally within IRAP Division Services.
As of today, SMEs can submit applications online, on a continuous intake basis, via the website of Global Affairs Canada.
