The Alberta Export Expansion Program provides funding support to Alberta small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), municipalities, industry associations, Indigenous communities and economic development organizations promoting Alberta exports through:
outbound international business travel
bringing international buyers to Alberta
For-profit or municipal applicants may be reimbursed up to 50%, and non-profit applicants up to 75%, on eligible costs such as:
- inter-city ground travel
- registration for tradeshows or events
- translation or interpretive services for marketing materials
- conference room space
Each applicant can apply to the program multiple times, but will only be eligible for up to a combined maximum of $25,000 in approved grant agreement(s) per program year (April 1 to March 31).
The applicant organization will receive the funding after travel has concluded.
