Export, Innovate, Invest - The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service

Aid Market Support Network

In addition to the Trade Commissioner Service's network of offices abroad and in Canada, Canadian firms and individuals have access to a number of support services to assist them specifically in accessing business opportunities in development markets.

Offices of Liaison with the International Financial Institutions are the primary contact for Canadian firms pursuing MDB related business opportunities. OLIFI assists and supports Canadian firms in interacting with the MDBs by offering procurement and competitive information, briefing sessions, qualified contacts, visit information, and assistance with resolving any problems.

Canadian trade offices in UN agency host cities can provide advice on the role, procurement procedures, qualified contacts, and business opportunities offered by UN agencies located in their region.

The PSLO Network is a network of local contact persons who facilitate SME access to MDB products and services, as well as interactions between the MDBs and the private sector.

Offices of the Canadian Executive Directors represent the interests of Canada at the individual multilateral development banks. The Office can provide strategic information on MDB policies, priorities and activities, as well as Canadian policy towards the MDBs.
