Business Growth Through Exporting!

Building export awareness can lead to new markets, the generation of innovative products, plant floor process improvements, and enhanced labour productivity.  OEC reported that Canada ranked 11th in the world for exports in 2016 and for 2018, economic groups are predicting Canadian companies will have exported close to $530 Billion of product to countries around the world!  If you are interested in exploring exporting opportunities there are a number of great organizations providing tools, resources and funding for those looking to expand markets across the globe.
