The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) helps companies navigate the complexities of international markets and make better business decisions. The TCS is on the ground in more than 160 cities worldwide. We gain market intelligence, uncover opportunities for Canadian companies and help reduce business costs and risks. The TCS is a free service of the Government of Canada, helping companies to prepare for international markets, assess market potential, find qualified contacts and resolve business problems. Our network of international contacts is unbeatable. As part of Global Affairs Canada and of Canada’s network of embassies, the TCS has access to local governments and key business leaders and decision makers. We can increase the credibility of Canadian companies in global markets by helping them gain access to local contacts not readily available to outside businesses. TCS insights help you save time and money by avoiding costly mistakes that may result from trial and error. We often know what questions companies need to ask but may be unaware of. Research shows that companies that use TCS services are more successful at exporting than those that don’t: the value of their exports is 18 percent higher, and they export to 36 percent more markets. We have hands-on knowledge that comes from helping thousands of companies each year to pursue opportunities in global markets. We understand the sensitivity of your business information and we respect its confidentiality. Whether you’re looking to export, invest abroad, attract investment or develop innovation and R & D partnerships, our global network of business professionals can help.
