GOVERNMENT OF CANADA SUPPORTS INTERNATIONAL TRADE DEVELOPMENT FOR CAPE BRETON STUDENTS AND BUSINESSES

SYDNEY (NS) – November 10, 2011 – With assistance from the Government of Canada through Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation (ECBC), the Nova Scotia Community College – Marconi Campus (NSCC-Marconi) is offering international trade programming to help train students in international business and provide expert faculty advice and counselling to businesses seeking to export their products and services.  

“Our Government is committed to economic recovery and focusing on what matters to Canadians – creating jobs and promoting economic growth,” said the Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Minister of State for ACOA and La Francophonie. “Exporting means new business opportunities and increased sales and we are pleased to work with NSCC-Marconi to help aspiring students and local businesses explore opportunities in the global marketplace.

NSCC-Marconi will be responsible for delivering a variety of export-related programming for potential, export-ready and existing exporters. These include:

  • matching business/marketing/international business students with potential and existing export firms on Cape Breton Island; 
  • assisting companies in the preparation of export readiness assessments, export plans and trade mission preparation and follow up;
  • mentoring companies to enhance their export preparedness; and
  • enhancing trade awareness and competency by conducting trade training.

“Students help to connect businesses with the knowledge and intelligence needed to begin exporting their product or services,” said Dave MacLean, Principal, Marconi Campus, NSCC. 

“This program helps companies in Cape Breton to reach new markets.”

The total cost of developing and implementing the export programming is $289,300 and ECBC is providing $216,975 over a two year period.

 

Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation offers programs in support of economic development initiatives and is responsible for delivering ACOA’s programs on Cape Breton Island and in the Mulgrave area.
