About the CanExport Small and Medium-sized Enterprises Program

The CanExport SME Program provides direct financial assistance to Small and Medium-sized Enterprises registered in Canada to help them develop new export opportunities and markets, especially high-growth emerging markets. It is delivered by the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) of Global Affairs Canada and provides financial support for a wide range of export development activities.

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises who have applied to or have an existing agreement under the AgriMarketing Program

The AgriMarketing Program will continue to honour any signed contribution agreements that already exist under the Program, both single and two-year agreements. This includes the processing and payment of the associated claims for reimbursement for activities included in the agreement.
