“We are Canada’s export credit agency. Our job is to support and develop Canada’s export trade by helping Canadian companies respond to international business opportunities. We are a self-financing, Crown corporation that operates at arm’s length from the Government.

“We provide insurance and financial services, bonding products and small business solutions to Canadian exporters and investors and their international buyers. We also support Canadian direct investment abroad and investment into Canada. Much of our business is done in partnership with other financial institutions and through collaboration with the government of Canada.”

The value of EDC to a budding exporter speaks for itself!  They host an excellent website which contains a wealth of information and resources.

Of particular interest is their “Our Solutions” section, where they highlight their numerous “range of trade finance and risk management services to Canadian exporters doing business in over 200 markets worldwide.”
