Minister Joly Launches the new Creative Export Strategy for Creative Industries, Including a New Export Funding Program

With Creative Canada, the Government of Canada has a plan to help Canada’s creative industries open up opportunities in new markets around the world. This will not only improve their competitiveness and ensure their long-term success, but also contribute to Canada’s economic growth, job creation and prosperity.

Today, the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, in close collaboration with the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of International Trade, and the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, is highlighting the Government of Canada’s investment of $125 million over 5 years to implement Canada’s first Creative Export Strategy. This includes the launch of Creative Export Canada, a new funding program that will help creators stand out in the global market.

The Creative Export Strategy will promote Canada’s creative industries by strengthening Canada’s presence in international markets where the business relationships are being built, the deals are being made, and the jobs are being created. The Strategy will also equip Canadian exporters with the tools they need to successfully export their projects.
