We’re also here to guide you through provincial and national export programs and services.  The Northern Ontario Exports Program is delivered by the City of Greater Sudbury on behalf of Ontario’s North Economic Development Corporation and funded by FedNor and NOHFC.

The Northern Ontario Exports Program also runs the Export Marketing Assistance Program and Customized Export Development Training Programs.

Export Marketing Assistance (EMA) Program

This program is designed to support export-ready companies, associations and not-for-profit entities to engage in export marketing and sales activities outside of Ontario.

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.

Customized Export Development Training (CEDT) Program 

This program is built to assist Northern Ontario companies to strengthen export sales performance through customized training. Every company has their own challenges and training requirements when it comes to maximizing the performance. This program is tailored to identify and address your specific needs.
