Êtes-vous un Canadien ou une Canadienne LGBT+ qui possède une entreprise qui fait actuellement des affaires à l’extérieur du Canada, ou qui y songe? Ce n’est certes pas nécessairement facile, car on peut faire face à plusieurs défis et embuches. Par contre, faire des affaires au niveau mondial peut rapporter gros et offrir des occasions inespérées à votre entreprise.

La CCGLC (Chambre de commerce LGBT+ du Canada) aimerait connaître vos commentaires et vos expériences en matière d’exportation. De concert avec Affaires mondiales Canada et EDC, la CCGLC mène un court sondage en ligne qui s’adresse spécifiquement aux entreprises de propriété LGBT+ qui sont déjà ou qui songent à être actives sur les marchés mondiaux.

Votre participation est d’une importance capitale. Si vous êtes un Canadien ou une Canadienne LGBT+ qui possède une entreprise et qui songe à faire des affaires sur les marchés mondiaux ou qui le fait actuellement, nous vous saurions gré de prendre une quinzaine de minutes pour nous faire part de votre expérience. Vos commentaires aideront la CCGLC à mieux vous appuyer et à mieux vous servir à l’avenir.
