Partner Event - Virtual Trade Mission - True North Free Trade Forum Virtual

Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) and the Province of Saskatchewan are proud to join the Government of Ontario in the inaugural True North Free Trade Forum (TNFTF).  Supported by Provincial and Territorial Partners, the event will bring together over 100 companies and 150 attendees who will exchange ideas and explore new business opportunities. 

Aimed at strengthening business ties across Canada to support economic recovery, the True North Free Trade Forum will look at the challenges and opportunities presented by COVID-19, as well as how increasing pan-Canadian trade could add up to $84 billion to Canada’s GDP.

The virtual event will allow Saskatchewan businesses the opportunity to uncover new regional sales opportunities in Canada’s Energy, Life Sciences and Healthcare, and Food and Beverage sectors. 

Participants can also address current and longer-term supply and partnering needs with made-in-Canada products, services and solutions. Topics such as technology, supply chain, logistics and transportation will also be featured.

  • Two days of live stream and webinar content focused on interprovincial/territorial trade and current, local market conditions
  • Sessions that highlight latest industry trends, business insights and opportunities from targeted regional markets across Canada
  • A curated business-to-business matchmaking program that will facilitate business connections between suppliers and key buyers from across Canada with specified sourcing needs
