Alberta Export Expansion Package

COMPETING IN FOREIGN MARKETS. ATTRACTING INVESTORS.

The Government of Alberta is investing up to $9 million over the next three years in three new export programs to provide additional support to Alberta small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).  

The Export Support Fund is now online and accepting applications. It will cover up to $20,000 to eligible Alberta companies for costs of exporting to new international markets.  

The Global Buyers and Investors Program will help export-ready companies connect with international buyers by bringing business delegations to the province.  

The Export Readiness Program will help small businesses with the ins-and-outs of exporting, including increasing access to Alberta's 12 international trade offices.

EXPORT SUPPORT FUND

ELIGIBLE ALBERTA COMPANIES

Can get help with costs 

The Export Support Fund is easing the cost of exporting for Alberta's small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) by reimbursing up to 50% for a select range of approved export activities - such as registration at select tradeshows, return economy airfare, accommodation in a standard room and translation of marketing materials. It supports Alberta SMEs as they look to enter new international markets - or a country that currently represents 10% or less of the company's sales from the previous year. Check Your Eligibility
