Trade Accelerator Program - 2021

Nov 24, 2021

The TAP is an innovative program designed to help small to medium-sized enterprises better prepare for international ventures. These sessions are a good learning opportunity to allow your company to make its initial leap into international markets with a program focused on the creative industries. During these virtual sessions, participating companies will establish key contacts and access the targeted expertise and strategic planning tools needed to successfully launch into new markets and grow in existing international markets. By the end of the program, you will be walking away with a complete Strategic Export Business Plan carefully vetted by industry leading partners and sponsors.

The program includes expertise from Canadian Heritage (PCH), Export Development Canada (EDC), Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), Global Affairs Canada (GAC – Trade Commissioner Service) and many more covering all angles of your export journey from financial tools, tax, intellectual property, logistics to international marketing and sales.

In order to be eligible to participate in the program, your company must:

– generate a minimum of $500K;

– be in business for at least two years; and

– dedicate at least one high-ranking representative for participation in the program
