Market Access Program


The CMPA Market Access Program is a pilot program that provides financial support for CMPA members' international business development activities in the form of a travel grant.

There are two deadlines during the course of the fiscal year for this pilot year, but applications are accepted on an ongoing basis until January 12, 2018. The CMPA will evaluate submissions and grant funds based on the application each company submits.

Grant amounts

Grant amounts are based on the destination country. Companies are eligible for the following amount:

  • Up to $600 for travel within North America (not available for travel within Canada)
  • Up to $800 for travel support to Europe and South America
  • Up to $1,000 for travel support to Africa, Asia and Oceania

Grants will be paid upon return and receipt of supporting documentation (receipts, report.) Members are eligible for one grant per company per fiscal year.

Application process

Companies are required to submit an application which details:

  • Information on the market they are targeting
  • How that fits into their international business development plans
  • What are the three major goals they hope to achieve at the market/festival/other event or meetings

Grant recipients are required to complete a short market report upon return. 

Evaluation process

  • The link between the company's international business development plans and the participation in the market/festival/other event or meetings identified in their application
  • Stage of growth the company
