Enterprise Europe Network is the world’s largest support network for small and medium-sized enterprises with international ambitions. Within the Enterprise Europe Network, a country outside the EU can be represented by a consortium forming a Business Cooperation Centre.
The German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research, located in Edmonton, the EU Chamber of Commerce in Canada-West, located in Vancouver, and the EU Chamber of Commerce in Canada, located in Toronto, have partnered to form such a Business Cooperation Centre. This Canadian entity is called the Enterprise Europe Network Canada (EEN Canada) and is coordinated by the GCCIR.
The EEN Canada works closely with both Canadian and European colleagues to advance opportunities for SMEs by providing business and innovation support services that help to strengthen companies’ competitiveness and sustainability.
