Export Readiness Micro-Voucher program


The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade and Alberta Innovates have collaborated to deliver the Export Readiness Micro-Voucher Program as part of the Government of Alberta’s Alberta Export Expansion Package (AEEP).

Alberta small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) interested in expansion into international markets can apply for up to $10,000 to offset the cost of developing an international market assessment or business plan, focused on one country.

The program is intended to support SMEs to align their international plans with global opportunities and to evaluate the risks and benefits of exporting prior to entering new global markets.

How to apply

The Export Readiness Micro-Voucher Program operates on an open call basis, meaning applications are accepted and reviewed on a continuum.
