Canada CanExport Funding

Can Export SMEs program is a reliable source of financial aid that can help you grow your business abroad by covering up to 50% of the eligible costs! Although Can Export SMEs program is not currently receiving applications, the program may reopen in February 2024 for projects beginning on April 1, 2024. Please continue to consult the program website for updates on the timing and terms of the program's reopening. Since the program is very popular, the application door may only open for a very short period of time before reaching funding or administration workload limit. That being said, I suggest you get familiar with the funding application criteria, eligible costs and application forms as soon as possible (even before program reopens).

All relevant information is available on the Program Website and the Application Guide below.
