The Canadian Export Challenge is going digital

Are you interested in fast‑tracking your global business growth?

This September, the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS), along with Export Development Canada (EDC), UPS, Mastercard and Scotiabank, are collaborating with Startup Canada to present the third annual, and first fully‑digital edition of the Canadian Export Challenge (CXC) for Canadian startups and scale‑ups powered by Google.

This year, the CXC will aim to be a safe space for Canadian exporters and industry partners to come together, provide support to each other, and navigate the uncertain export environment in light of COVID‑19.

Participants can:

  • Attend livestream presentations and breakout sessions
  • Experience interactive learning with industry experts
  • Apply to compete in the digital pitch competition


The events will be held digitally during the week of September 14th, 2020 in the following five regions across Canada (final dates to be confirmed):

  • British Columbia and Northern Region
  • Prairies Region
  • Ontario Region
  • Atlantic Region
  • Quebec Region


The call for applications to register for CXC participation opened on June 1, 2020. Entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply and submit their video pitches until September 9, 2020.
