Government Funding for International Growth

Discover Provincial and Federal Options for Export-Related Funding

Course Description

If you are looking to expand your sales outside of Canada, there are government programs available to help you.

This two-part seminar features speakers from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, and Global Affairs Canada Trade Commissioner Service.

Please Note: If you are an agri-food business and are interested in applying for the BC Agri-food & Seafood Market Development Program to obtain cost-shared funding to pursue inter-provincial and international market opportunities, the first step is to be confirmed as an eligible business by completing Part A, the “Eligibility Confirmation Form”  of the application.
