International Business Development

The International Business Development Section at the Consulate General of Canada in Boston is one of 161 offices of the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS), part of the Government of Canada.


Trade Commissioners provide Canadian business and innovation clients with practical advice, on-the-ground intelligence, and connections to help them achieve their global goals.  Trade Commissioners work with businesses in New England by making connections to Canada, driving value and innovation to the region.

Our team of nine Trade Commissioners in Boston work along sectoral lines.  Our priorities align with what New England has to offer and where Canada has strengths: life sciences, IT (AI, cleantech, digital health), agriculture (including food tech), sports tech, consumer and retail, aerospace and defense, robotics, and ocean technologies.

If you are a New England based business and/or innovator, our team would be pleased to assist you with identifying potential partners, information on investing in Canada, facilitating R&D collaboration and technology transfer, or supporting venture capital linkages.

Whether you’re an American firm interested in investing in Canada, or a Canadian firm seeking new partnerships or exploring new markets, the TCS is here to help.

We can help you connect.  Let us handle the introductions!
