The Department of Business, Tourism, Culture and Rural Development offers programs to support business development in the craft and gift sectors: the Crafts of Character Branding Program and the Wholesale Marketing Program.
In order to be eligible for these programs, products must fit the department's Definitions of Craft or Gift .
Also, producers are required to submit product samples for Product Review prior to making application to any of our programs. For more information please visit the Product Review page.
Products which do not fit the definitions of craft or gift may still be eligible for department funding programs as part of other sectors.
The Crafts of Character Branding Program promotes high-quality, distinctive Newfoundland and Labrador craft, gift and apparel products which demonstrate excellence in creativity and craftsmanship.
The Wholesale Marketing Program assists craft, gift and apparel producers with developing wholesale markets for their products in Newfoundland, Labrador and Atlantic Canada..
