Canada’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) drive economic prosperity and create jobs for the middle class. Opening new markets and expanding existing international markets are central to Canada’s trade diversification strategy, which encourages Canadian businesses to tap into new markets, reach new customers and create well-paying jobs.
The Government of Canada is focused on supporting Canadian technology companies and entrepreneurs in the development, commercialization and selling of innovative products and services around the globe while creating high-quality middle-class jobs for Canadians across the country.
Trade creates wealth and jobs, and Canada is committed to ensuring that everyone can share in that prosperity, including traditionally under-represented groups such as women, Indigenous peoples and small and medium-sized enterprises.
Canada is at the forefront of international efforts to improve the health of the poorest and most vulnerable, especially women, girls and adolescent girls. This is why Canada is joining forces with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to end these epidemics for good by increasing its contribution to the Fund.
