Why Trade Matters
One in four Canadian jobs relies on international trade. No other major economy is as trade-oriented as Canada. Each day, we export and import several billion dollars worth of goods and services with the rest of the world.


If you are a potential or preparing exporter the Business Services Society is one the first places to visit.

If you are in Vancouver:
We offer a growing trade library, access to the Internet via public access terminals, export-related seminars, workshops and other learning opportunities. We have also expanded our export services to include one-on-one export coaching (by appointment only).

Outside Vancouver:
We are your Team Canada Inc information source in British Columbia and may be reached toll-free at 1-888-811-1119.

Team Canada Inc is a network of more than 20 federal departments and agencies working together for the benefit of exporters.



If you are interested in importing products into Canada, we have recently updated and added to our ever-expanding sources of information under our ‘Websites for Small Business > Importing”. Our Importing Sourcing Guide (PDF document) is an invaluable reference tool and a great ‘first step’ in planning to establish an importing business in British Columbia.
