EDC Critical to Canada’s Trade Diversification Agenda

On June 19, 2019, CME along with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Business Council wrote to Jim  Carr, Minister of International Trade Diversification with regards to EDC’s vital position in Canada’s export ecosystem.

Over its long history EDC has helped thousands of Canadian companies realize their global ambitions. It is a unique institution that provides financing and insurance products, fills marketplace gaps, and supports ventures that the private sector cannot. With the full backing of the federal government, EDC enables Canadian enterprise to thrive in international markets. This benefits both large exporters and countless small and medium sized businesses in their supply chains.
