Foreign Rights Marketing Assistance Program (FRMAP)

Livres Canada Books Resumes FRMAP Travel Funding

Funding for 2021–2022 FRMAP recipients has resumed for qualifying export sales trips and international trade events that are deemed essential by the program recipients.

Recipients must follow updated national and international public health guidelines and regulations concerning COVID-19 while respecting Global Affairs Canada’s travel advisories and advice: https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories. They must also respect the health measures of the country being visited and all other relevant guidelines.

After following and respecting all above-mentioned recommendations, FRMAP recipients can submit a claim for their trip. In the event that one or more COVID-19 tests are needed to undertake the export trip or event, recipients can add the fees to the eligible program expenses.

FRMAP recipients who choose to travel at this time do so at their own risk and are responsible for fees and other expenses related to COVID-19 public health measures, such as quarantine and self-isolation.
