Congratulations on being one of 200 eligible Canadian small businesses to participate in the GS1 Canada Trade-Readiness Certification Program. In this program, you will learn how to become trade ready and get important insight into how to meet trading partner requirements across grocery and foodservice channels. This program also provides guidance and resources through the product listing process.
The program consists of 2 sessions, 3 self-paced eLearning modules in each. You will be required to complete all 6 modules (approximately 35 minutes each) and pass a short quiz, within the specified timeframe. You will also be asked to complete a quick survey at the end of each module to share your questions and comments. Your feedback is important and will help to develop future small business content and initiatives.
You will receive a Session 1 Certificate after successfully completing the first three modules and quizzes. Session 2 modules will be available soon; we will notify you by email with an access link. You will receive a subscription refund by cheque within 60 days of completing all 6 modules. Your subscription and associated licence are valid for 12 months and automatically renew annually*.
Financial support was provided through the AgriAssurance Program under the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
