Trade Accelerator Program (TAP)

Have you ever thought about trying out new markets? The current economic climate is better than ever for Quebec SMEs looking to grow their exports internationally.

In order to help you accomplish your new goals, the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal’s Acclr experts in international trade, in collaboration with RBC and EDC, are pleased to launch the Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) in Quebec.

What is the TAP?

The Trade Accelerator Program (TAP) is a program created to help companies increase their export potential. After the success of this program in other Canadian cities, Acclr experts decided to launch the TAP in Quebec in partnership with RBC and EDC.

The TAP is a three-step interactive program that gives participating companies the opportunity to benefit from expert advice and mentorship in order to establish an export plan that they can then activate with the help of the partners.
