Add blank backgrounds to transparent artboards in Sketch

In Sketch, artboards have transparent backgrounds by default, even though they render white on the canvas. But when uploading artboards to InVision, viewing changes in Abstract, or otherwise exporting, the canvas doesn't match what's exported:
