Now is the time for Canadian companies to export globally. A lower Canadian dollar, limited domestic growth, and uncertainty in the U.S. have established the right conditions for Canadian firms to diversify and go global.

At the same time, uncertainty in the trade relationship with our largest trading partner means that it is even more important for Canadian companies to diversify and prepare their companies for long-term success in new export markets.

Through its Expert Partners, TAP Canada gives companies access to Canada’s top exporting advisors, resources and contacts. Companies will have the opportunity to work with industry leaders to build a comprehensive Export Plan, and then begin its implementation.

We encourage companies to take advantage of this unique opportunity to accelerate their firm’s growth and export capacity. The services and visibility offered through TAP Canada are valued at approximately $25,000.

This extensive program is offered to Canadian businesses for only $495 +GST (includes 2 participants), which also includes your first-year membership with World Trade Center Buffalo Niagara.
