Foreign Trade Zones - Marketing Program (FTZ-MP)

The Foreign Trade Zones – Marketing Program (FTZ-MP) is one of four components of the Global Commerce Support Program. It is designed to market Canada’s Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) advantage and attract foreign direct investment. The program supports Canadian regional organizations and non-profit organizations in their promotion of local FTZ-type benefits linked to strategic locations across Canada.

Non-repayable contributions range from $10,000 to $150,000 for activities spanning a 12 month period. FTZ-MP provides matching funds of up to 50 percent of eligible expenses. If a recipient accesses other federal government support, the total federal support cannot exceed 50 percent of eligible expenses.
