February 19, 2021 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada

Today, the Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade, announced that she will lead a group of Canadian business people on a virtual trade mission to France from March 29 to April 1, inclusive, and April 8, with a focus on creating opportunities for businesses to grow and contribute to a sustainable and inclusive economic recovery.

This trade mission will offer Canadian businesses a deep understanding of the French market and opportunities in emerging sectors of sustainable mobility, hydrogen energy, responsible goods and sustainable consumption, and information technology solutions for a green recovery.

Minister Ng will be joined by Isabelle Hudon, Canada’s Ambassador to France, for a series of dynamic and interactive sessions that will expand participants’ knowledge of France’s vibrant green economy and existing avenues for transatlantic trade.

Participation is free, and interested business owners and entrepreneurs have until March 12 to register for 1 of the 2 available streams:

  • Exploratory Stream (March 29): Companies will learn how to leverage advantages and opportunities available in France through the Canada-EU Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA).
  • Exporter Stream (March 29 to April 1, inclusive, and April 8): Canadian export-ready small and medium-sized enterprises with potential in the French market will hear from experts in their sector; pre-qualified companies will additionally benefit from business connections facilitated by trade commissioners in France.
