Prepare your business to reach its global potential with the Edmonton Trade Accelerator Program (TAP). TAP provides small to medium-sized enterprises access to industry experts who help you to develop and execute a personalized market-entry export plan.
PREPARE YOUR BUSINESS FOR THE NEXT LEVEL.
Exporting can be daunting, costly, and time consuming, leaving many business owners limited in terms of how much they can grow.
TAP helps you overcome these barriers through an innovative program, designed to accelerate the strategic development of your business and to better prepare you for an expansion into international markets.
GROW WITH THE RIGHT TOOLS.
Through intensive workshops, peer-to-peer exchange, hands-on support and coaching from leading Canadian export advisors, and individual mentoring, you will be able to develop an export plan that is realistic, high-quality and fully integrated with your overall business strategy, equipping you with the tools and resources to find success as you grow your business.
“TAP offered us the support and structure to move forward our export planning in a thoughtful and efficient way. It showed us that local products from Canada can compete on a global scale and gave us the confidence to enter new markets.”

“Because of what we learned [at TAP], we were able to keep our staff working, and provide stability to their families, during one of the most unprecedented times in history.”
–Curtis Hrdlikca, Enerpan Building Systems
“The value that we received is not only being able to plan how we’re going to export, but also having a panel of experts there to guide and coach us. Having those contacts afterwards for support and research is invaluable.”

“The program helped us kick start our overseas program, taught us about issues we would not have considered, and introduced us to experts we can work with to solve problems and help us along the way.”
