About Us

As part of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada, the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service helps Canadian companies and organizations succeed globally.

Created in 1894, the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) has more than 120 years of experience helping Canadian companies succeed in foreign markets by promoting the economic interests of Canada in the global marketplace

Since Canada's first Trade Commissioner's posting to Australia in 1895, the role of the TCS has become increasingly critical and of higher value within an ever evolving global economy. Canada's active and successful participation in the global economy impacts all Canadians. Consider that a fifth of all jobs in this country are directly linked to international trade and Canadians companies are among the most successful on the international stage.

The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service has trade offices across Canada and in 161 offices around the world. We can provide Canadian businesses with on-the-ground intelligence, qualified contacts, partnership opportunities and practical advice on foreign markets to help you make better, more timely and cost-effective decisions in order to achieve your goals abroad.

If you’re looking to do business in Canada, the TCS global network of trade professionals can assist foreign companies in making Canada their next investment destination.
