The Federal Government has announced a series of cross-country consultations with industry and business leaders in relation to Canada’s global commerce strategy – including from SMEs – as part of its 2012 Economic Action Plan.  From DFAIT:

“As part of Economic Action Plan 2012, the Government of Canada made a commitment to refresh the Global Commerce Strategy (GCS). The government is undertaking a series of cross-country consultations with industry and business leaders—including those from small-and medium-sized enterprises. A refreshed GCS will align Canada’s trade and investment objectives in large, dynamic and fast-growing priority markets, with an eye to ensuring that Canada is branded to its greatest advantage in those markets.”

The Government’s cross-country consultations will include Halifax, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Vancouver and Ottawa.
