Support Nova Scotia’s women in business:



Trade Missions

Applications are being accepted for our Fall 2021 Virtual Business Trade Mission to Jamaica & Florida, the Gateway to the Caribbean and Latin America. Apply here until Sept. 23, 2021. We are recruiting for a non-gendered, virtual trade mission for Kingston, Jamaica and Miami, Florida! The mission is for Atlantic Canadian entrepreneurs and takes place this fall. Our matchmaker for the mission is BEYOND Ventures Group Inc.

One of the many ways that we support women business owners is through leading trade missions. Trade missions are used to explore potential international business opportunities and to help create networks of buyers, agents, suppliers and key government contacts in specific countries or regions. Leverage the momentum and historical successes of Atlantic Canadian companies to export your product or service into new markets or grow your current exports!

In-person trade missions typically include traveling to market and 3-4 days of briefings and scheduled business meetings with pre-qualified potential customers, partners, agents, distributors and other key contacts.

Virtual trade missions typically include a virtual welcome reception, mentoring, and scheduled business meetings over a period of 4-6 weeks.
