International sales opportunities with foreign governments

According to the World Bank, every year trillions of dollars in government procurement opportunities are made available through competitive bidding. These opportunities cover a wide cross-section of industries, including infrastructure projects in developing countries, defence, aerospace, clean technologies and oil and gas.


If your firm is already exporting, selling to foreign municipal, state and federal governments is an excellent way for you to grow your exports and business.


Our winning approach: Government to Government (G2G) contracting

At the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC), we help Canadian businesses win more international public sector contract opportunities with foreign governments through our government to government (G2G) contracts.


Our solution involves creating a teaming arrangement that allows us to advocate for you and your proposal, seek the right terms and conditions for contract success, and to be there to resolve any disputes. From project development to final payment, a G2G contract increases a Canadian company’s chances of winning the business.
