The world needs a little more Canada

Are you ready to go global or explore new markets? The Trade Accelerator Program is your ticket to take your business to the next level.

The Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) is an innovative 4-session initiative, designed to accelerate the strategic development of your business and to better prepare you for an expansion into international markets. With TAP, you'll get the tools, connections and knowledge you need to take your business into new markets. Our team understands the challenges you’re facing and is here to support and prepare you. TAP is designed to provide entrepreneurs with:

•  Customized, face-to-face coaching and advice
•  Navigation of the complexities of the global trade ecosystem
•  Access to a network of experts and thought leaders
•  Familiarity with international best practices
•  Assistance in developing and executing an export plan


The health and safety of our community is of paramount importance to us. After being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Trade Accelerator Program is set to restart in Calgary, with some changes being implemented to ensure participants' safety. Please email Shona Reilly with TAP Calgary for any questions or concerns regarding the program.
