Export Workshop: Selling to the Canadian Government


Each year the Government of Canada (GoC) spends approximately $20 billion on goods and services, much of which comes from the United States.  Canada continues to maintain its ranking as the United States’ largest export market in the world. 

Proximity, ease of doing business, a common business culture, rule of law, and high receptivity for U.S. goods and services contribute to the already significant bilateral trade base.


Join us for an informative workshop to learn how the GoC buys goods and services; how to access resources and tools available to suppliers; how to move your workers across the border, and more. 


Agenda includes:


  • Overview of Selling to the Government of Canada (and Live Demonstration of the GoC’s Electronic Tendering System) – Caroline Landry, Regional Director, Public Works and Government Services Canada
  • How the U.S. Commercial Service in Canada Can Help – Lucy Cicero Latka, Sr. Commercial Specialist, U.S. Commercial Service
  • Using the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Advocacy Center to Win Public Bids - Tim Lord, Western Hemisphere Regional Manager, Advocacy Center, U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Getting Your Workers Over the Border – Warren L. Creates, Head Immigration Law Group (Canada and America), Perley-Robertson, Hill & McDougall


Date: December 10, 2014

Time: 2:00pm – 4:30pm 
Venue: Cheel Campus Center, Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY 13676


This event is complimentary for North Country businesses but advance registration is required.
