Seeking Exporters and Potential Exporters of Building Products in Atlantic Canada
If you do not fall into this sector and know someone that should receive this information, please let us know.
Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) is planning a Pan Atlantic Export Roadshow for Building Products throughout Atlantic Canada in early fall. All CME divisions in Atlantic Canada will be involved in this project, which is being supported by the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and all four provincial governments in Atlantic Canada.
To help CMA plan the location and content of the Roadshow sessions, they are seeking to identify companies in the Building Products sector in Atlantic Canada who are existing exporters or wish to export and would be interested in attending these sessions.
The objective of the Roadshow is to identify companies from the Building Products sector in Atlantic Canada who are exporting outside Canada or wish to export outside Canada, to provide training and information about exporting and potential export markets, and determine the types of support exporters and potential exporters wish to receive going forward. The project will consist of a series of all-day information/consultation sessions held throughout the Atlantic Provinces tailored to the participants in each session depending on their level of experience with exporting. The report from this project will be used to develop future initiatives whether on a Pan Atlantic, provincial or regional basis to support exporters or potential exporters of Building Products. Ultimately the aim is to increase the number of exporters and the level of exports of Building Products from Atlantic Canada.
For purposes of this project, Building Products includes any products or components used to construct buildings whether residential or commercial, such as value-added wood products, windows, doors, cabinetry, metal wall panels, etc.
If you are an existing exporter of Building Products or wish to export, and are interested in attending one of the Roadshow sessions please contact CMA by Tuesday, September 8, 2015 as follows:
All interested companies are requested to respond to the following questions:
- Do you currently export Building Products outside Canada?
- If yes, to which countries do you currently export and to which countries would you like to export?
- If you do not currently export, to which countries are you interested in exporting?
- What products do you produce?
- Where are you located?
