Ministry of International Trade


The Ministry of International Trade is the central hub of international trade for Ontario, driving partnerships and coordination across all ministries, municipalities, regions and businesses, and with the federal government, toward greater outcomes for Ontario.  The Ministry is responsible for Ontario’s international trade strategy that positions Ontario as a global trading partner.  The Ministry champions Ontario’s international economic and business interests with a strategic focus on scaling-up the province’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) through export support programs, and works to help Ontario businesses increase and diversify their exports.  The Ministry operates International Trade & Investment Offices in key global markets to advance Ontario’s economic interests and promote Ontario as a premier location to do business.  The Ministry is also the lead on Ontario’s free trade agreements with a focus on NAFTA renegotiation and Ontario’s U.S. Trade Engagement strategy.
