Mexico women in health technology - Canadian Technology Accelerator

Did you know that Mexico is Latin America's second-largest market for pharmaceuticals and medical devices? Medical products from Canada are highly regarded in Mexico due to their high quality and safety. Plus, Canadian companies looking to sell pharmaceuticals and medical devices can benefit from easier access into the Mexican market because of two free trade agreements: The Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

This Canadian Technology Accelerator (CTA) global business development program is for women-led companies. By participating in the program, you will gain the knowledge and connections needed to enter and grow in this key market.
