Feel free to contact us directly for a free quote, or to answer any other questions you may have.


Q9- How will my company’s business profile stand out?

A9: We place profiles under separate Business Categories such as Chemicals, Machinery, Franchising and Environment, among others. These categories are clearly divided within the Magazine and are color coded for visual distinction. To insure that each ad stands out, we put only a few profiles (ads) in every category.


Q10- How do I know that my company’s business profile will get into the hands of the right people?

A10: Canadian Exports is distributed through (and referred by) Business Councils, Chambers of Commerce and other import/export associations in over 120 countries. Unlike business directories, our publication will be sent only to businesses that have expressed direct interest. 


Q11- Sounds too good to be true!

A11: Actually no! It’s simply an effective way to do business. Export Promotion Magazines, tools and services are present in all industrial countries around the world, and our research shows a correlation between the number of such publications and the degree of success of the export industry in a specific market (India and China are good examples). Our publication is designed to help your business to maximize its export potential and capture global business opportunities.


Q12- Is Canadian Exports an Online Business Directory? If not, how is it different?

A12: No. We have our own Online Business Directory, which contains more than 1.2 million Canadian businesses and is offered for free. The main differences between Canadian Exports and an Online Business Directory are:

1- Canadian Exports advertises less than 300 businesses per issue, whereas a “Business Directory” contains millions. Advertising with us therefore allows you to stand out in the marketplace.

2- Canadian Exports contains only exporters (unlike a “Business Directory”, which contains any and every business).

3- Canadian Exports is a safe, secure and reliable way of breaking into new markets and/or increasing market share for companies around the world.

4- Canadian Exports is always travelling the globe in search of new markets, opportunities and buyers. In comparison, a “Business Directory” is simply a static online tool, a passive online resource.


Q13: What is the method of payment? Will I be asked to give my bank account information or credit card number over the phone?

A13: No. We never ask for any personal or confidential information such as bank account information or credit card numbers. You can send us payment through services like PayPal or Interac money transfer. Alternatively, we can also send you an invoice by physical mail. 


Q14- Is there a deadline for my company to approve the order and make the payment?

A14: Yes. There is a deadline for every issue, in accordance with the printing schedule. The sales consultant who takes your order will inform you of the current deadline.


Q15- How do I sign up to be included in Canadian Exports?

A15: Registration takes only a few minutes. You can register your business here, or call us toll-free right now at 1-877-333-3014. One of our consultants will be happy to assist you.


Q16- Can I modify my Business Profile after it’s been registered? 

A16: Yes. You will be given a user name and a password. You can modify your Business Profile online as many times as you’d like, at no extra cost.
