Exporting a Product or Service

The economy of Newfoundland and Labrador has always relied heavily on exports, which have traditionally been in resource-based industries. The trend towards globalization over the past two decades has opened up a wealth of new opportunities for local companies to compete in international markets. This is particularly true for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and non resource-based businesses.

Our focus in export development is making companies aware of the opportunities available to them, preparing them to compete effectively in new markets and providing appropriate support.

The Department's export development strategy seeks to:

  • Increase the export knowledge and preparedness of Newfoundland and Labrador companies
  • Increase the number of new exporters
  • Increase the sales and growth of existing exporters
  • Diversify markets of existing exporters and to introduce new exporters to targeted markets
