Global Opportunities for Associations: 2018 to 2019 funding recipients

Backgrounder

Global Opportunities for Associations (GOA) provides contribution funding to support national associations undertaking new or expanded international business development activities, in strategic markets and sectors, for the benefit of an entire industry (member and non-member firms). GOA shares the risks and costs of activities, thereby providing an incentive for associations and their members to be more ambitious in entering global markets.

Annual non-repayable contributions range from a minimum of $20,000 to a maximum of $250,000 and must be used for activities and related expenditures taking place between April 1 and March 31 of the following year. GOA provides matching funds of up to 50% of eligible expenses.
