With more than half of the firms in Northern Ontario stating access to new markets, both internationally and domestically, as a top priority for growth, this program is specifically designed to increase the global reach of your products and services. As part of the Northern Ontario Exports Program proudly supported by FedNor and The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, Ontario’s North Economic Development Corporation has developed the Export Marketing Assistance program as a means to ‘kick open the doors’ to new global markets for the innovative products and services of Northern Ontario’s mining supply and services sector and companies from other sectors looking to export or dramatically increase their export potential.

If you are serious about growing the export potential of your business, this program provides timely financial assistance to help you engage international and out of province clients in an increasingly complex global market, expand your marketing reach outside of Northern Ontario and solidify revenue streams from a broader geographic customer base.

For more information regarding the Northern Ontario Exports Program and the Export Marketing Assistance, please contact Scott Rennie, Project Manager via email scott.rennie@sudbury.ca or via phone (705) 674-4455 x4403
