Women-focused business delegations and events
The Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) organizes women-focused business delegations and events each year. The business delegations allow Canadian women-owned and women-led businesses to explore international opportunities, access supplier diversity opportunities and gain important market knowledge.
Focus on business women
For over 20 years, the TCS has taken hundreds of Canadian women entrepreneurs on women-focused business delegations around the world, this includes Brazil, Europe, Mexico and the United States. The TCS runs annual delegations and supports important women-focused events.
TCS business delegations include on-the-ground support from, trade commissioners and our impressive network of partners, including the Women’s Enterprise Organizations of Canada (WEOC).
