Canada Export Award 1984 What do 15 Canadian companies, producing everything from space arms to spectacles and underwater vehicles, have in common? Export Excellence! They were chosen last year to receive this country's highest export distinction - the CANADA EXPORT AWARD. Each of the firms shared a common spark, an entrepreneurial flair that: 1) significantly increased export sales; 2) successfully broke into new export markets; 3) introduced new export products. Their success gave them another common bond • the right to proudly fly the CANADA EXPORT AWARD pennant. This year, the awards will be presented at a luncheon ceremony held in conjunction with the annual convention of the Canadian Export Association on October 16th. Will your company be in the winner's circle? For application forms, write to: Canada Export Award Program, Department of External Affairs, Lester B. Pearson Building, 125 Sussex Drive, Ottawa.
