Participants will establish key contacts, access a wide range of resources and receive hands-on mentorship from top industry experts.


Our innovative initiative is designed to accelerate the strategic development of your business and to better prepare you for an expansion into international markets.


The program comprises intensive workshops that familiarize participants with the available exporting resources, introduces high-level experts in key functions of international trade, stimulates peer-to-peer exchange of ideas & experiences, and provides guidance in recognizing and handling business challenges.

Participants will receive hands-on support from leading Canadian export advisors in the development of their Export Plan. Participants will tackle key sections of their export plan, detailing strategic objectives, market entry methods, international marketing plan, as well as supply chain and operational resources.

Over the course of the program, participants will develop their trade plan. They will have the full support of export advisors to guide and assist them in developing an export plan that is realistic, high quality, and fully integrated with their overall business strategy. All export plans receive a written assessment from our expert team.

The final phase of the program is focused on mentoring, constructive feedback, solutions, and reinforcing business relationships. After reviewing the export plan, participants will receive individual mentoring sessions from our expert partners where potential solutions and ways forward are explored. Participants will walk away with a complete Strategic Export Plan!
