Rob Bigler, GM for eBay Canada, recently met with the US Ambassador to Canada, David L. Cohen to discuss eBay Canada’s programming and initiatives to help small businesses export to customers around the world. Rob provided an overview of the eBay Up & Running program and eBay Academy, both designed to offer key training and support for small businesses. He also noted the partnerships that eBay has with many organizations throughout Canada to reach small businesses, such as Digital Main Street, Canada Digital Adoption Program, and the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business. Finally, Rob detailed some of the challenges faced by eBay’s Canadian small business sellers and their efforts to sell globally, including various red tape, trade barriers and shipping costs. We thank Ambassador Cohen for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit with Rob Bigler and for the productive conversation on these important issues.
