Are you a Scottish-based company with global ambitions? Then join this cross-sector Scottish business trade mission to explore trade opportunities in Canada.

Why Canada?

Canada is an important trade and investment partner for Scottish companies of all sizes and across all business sectors. Scotland and Canada share deep cultural and historical ties, with broadly similar legal and political systems.

Latest figures show Scottish exports valued at £380 million. We support more than 50 Scottish companies every year in Canada to develop and grow their Canadian business activity. The implementation of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is expected to increase trade flows between the two markets.

SDI gives you a chance to take a first hand look and engage with Canada's business community and offers you a gateway to massive consumer markets in North America.

What will it cost?
