This Program contributes to the aims and objectives of the Atlantic Trade and Investment Growth Strategy, a collaborative, pan-Atlantic approach to help Atlantic businesses begin exporting, increase their export sales, expand to new markets, and create global partnerships. The Strategy was developed jointly by the governments of Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Support for this Program is provided in part through the Atlantic Trade and Investment Growth Agreement, a federal/provincial agreement between the Government of Canada and the governments of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador.
