Export Québec is born!

The government created Export Québec to help Québec companies develop, consolidate and diversify their export markets.

This one-stop service can count on 150 experienced, multi-lingual people here in Québec and abroad as well as a $60 million budget spread over three years. Of this amount, $7.5 million will be used to set up a network of incubators around the world that will make it possible for Québec companies to set up foreign sales offices. The network will cover 50 cities in 30 countries.

Export Québec will focus on small and medium-sized businesses and will be able to provide assistance at various stages of their growth:

  • Conducting market research outside Québec

  • Drafting and implementing international business plans

  • Recruiting international business specialists

  • Ensuring compliance with border control measures

  • Opening foreign sales offices


The Government of Québec is looking to use this strategy to increase the volume of Québec exports to Brazil, Russia, India and China.

Export Québec is a unit of the Ministère du Développement économique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation du Québec.
