MercadOr Quebec Export Gala 

MercadOr Québec, organized by Commerce International Québec, is a provincial export award gala. 


The Mercador Gala takes place in two stages of company selection. First at the regional level, on the territory of the West Island of Montreal covered by ExMO, then at the provincial level.  




Created in 1999, the MercadOr Québec competition aims to highlight the success of exporting companies from all over Québec and to offer positive visibility to their company at the regional and provincial levels, in addition to promoting exports to the actors of Québec's economic development ecosystem. 



The Provincial Award is divided into five categories: 


  • New exporter

This MercadOR underlines the implementation of a first concrete and structured export approach. The company distinguishes itself by the quality of its approach and its market development practices.

  • Market Diversification

 This MercadOR is divided into two sub-categories (sales under and over $5M) and highlights the exceptional achievements of a company that has been able to diversify these markets over the last three years. The company must demonstrate a structured approach and stand out through its management and market development practices.
