Who are we?
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.
What do we do?
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.
In 2017, EDC was entrusted by the Government of Canada to create a Canadian development finance institution (DFI). Created as a subsidiary of EDC, the DFI’s core mandate will be to support sustainable development and poverty reduction in developing countries by providing financial services in support of private sector initiatives.
