In 2013, Union Sowdjoma, a consortium of 12 women’s cooperatives, was established in the heart of the Cascades Region of Burkina Faso. With 1,017 women members, the Union has made significant strides in producing, processing, and marketing organic and fair-trade certified shea butter.
Trade Facilitation Office (TFO) Canada is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve lives by creating sustainable trade partnerships for exporters from developing countries with Canadian and foreign buyers.

Where We Work


TFO Canada is proud to present its third Annual Impact Report. As the main COVID-19 pandemic measures were lifted, many in-person events resumed during the year 2022-2023. While the year was not a complete “return-to-normal”, our team, partners, project participants and funders were able to adapt nicely to several challenges that included global inflationary pressures, political unrest in some countries as well as the ongoing struggles related to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

This year’s report highlights a number of impactful activities and thematic areas that are representative of the work TFO Canada performs. From exporter training/capacity building programs to international market access activities, to research and understanding key sectors, our reach has been tremendous. As a result, we have been able to advance in the delivery of our mission of improving lives through the creation of sustainable trade partnerships for exporters from developing countries with Canadian and foreign buyers.

Like past years, none of this would have been possible without the strong partnerships that we’ve developed over the years with various funders, partners, associates, and other stakeholders. With their support, TFO Canada has been able to advance its mission during the year.
