Trade Missions to Canada

Inverness Chamber of Commerce is organising two trade missions to Canada in 2020 which may be of interest to anyone looking to do business in Canada:

1. Quebec – W/C 23rd March

This is a cross sectoral mission but there are opportunities particularly for:

• Aerospace
• Agri-food
• Aluminium
• Transportation
• IT
• Life Sciences
• Multimedia
• Hydroelectricity

Two days will be spent in Quebec city and three in Montreal.

2. Ontario – May (dates TBC)

Also open to all sectors but there are opportunities particularly for:

• Manufacturing (automotive, IT, pharmaceuticals)
• Agriculture
• Forestry
• Mining
• Services Industry (Professional & Business services, financial services, arts and culture)
• Tourism

This is a four day mission.

Eligibility criteria

• Open to any company in Scotland looking to grow their international trade activity
• Companies do not need to be a member of a Chamber of Commerce


• Costs for each mission are expected to be in the region of £1000. A non-refundable deposit of £250 is required to secure each delegate place.
• Companies may be eligible to apply for HIE’s Go Global Grant to cover the costs of flights and accommodation (the deposit is ineligible) for the missions. In the first instance companies should register their interest in taking part in the mission with the Inverness Chamber. In order to access Go Global funding clients need to be working with International Trade Adviser, Stewart Miller, who can support the client in completing the Go Global grant application, whilst also looking at wider international plans. The costs of the mission are below the minimum project costs of £1,700 and so in order to qualify for the grant, the client should have plans to undertake additional international activity.
