We’re less than a week away from the WEDC’s Canada Trade Venture – the first in-person Venture since 2020!
This year’s Venture starts on Monday the 20th, with stops in Toronto and Montreal. Client companies cover sectors including food, beauty, and education technology. You can learn more about them here; a few meeting spots are still available, so contact us to get your session on the calendar.
These types of programs are very important – small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are significant contributors to any economy, and accessing new markets is a good way to keep them strong.
The International Trade Administration’s website has a very comprehensive list of reasons why SMEs should export to new markets. And we’re particularly lucky here in North America – the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA, or USMCA as it’s known in the U.S.) and its predecessor NAFTA were designed to help businesses by ensuring that goods and services could cross our borders with few impediments. It’s a great roadmap to economic prosperity for the three member countries – and their SMEs.
We’ve previously posted links to export resources available through our client states; you’ll find more about them here.
