CTAs help participants maximize their time in market and provide them with the most relevant and impactful support possible. There are no participation costs associated with the CTA program, aside from travel and accommodation expenses.

While CTAs vary in length and in format (virtual or in-market), all participating companies benefit from:

  • access to a vast network of trade commissioners
  • coaching and mentorship from industry leaders
  • support to refine international business and market-entry strategies
  • introductions to potential partners and clients
  • introductions to investors and venture capitalists
  • a collaborative workspace (where available)

Canadian companies may be eligible to receive financial support from the CanExport program to help cover costs related to CTA participation. Discover funding and support programs for doing international business.

CTA alumni are well-positioned for pursuing their global growth plans. Read what CTA participants said about our program.
