The Export Support Fund helps to subsidy the cost of exporting for Alberta’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) by reimbursing up to 50% of eligible project costs to a maximum of $20,000 in Alberta government funding. This includes the reimbursing of translations of documents and marketing materials expenses. This program supports export-ready Alberta companies to access new international markets or a country that currently represents up to 10% of their sales from the previous year.
Alberta is a trade province and we’re setting Alberta companies up to succeed in the world market. When Alberta companies export their products and services around the world, it creates jobs and generates economic growth and diversification here at home.
