Export Development Canada Mandate
Export Development Canada (EDC) is Canada’s Export Credit agency. Canada’s Export Development Act establishes EDC’s mandate: To support and develop Canada’s export trade and Canadian capacity to engage in that trade and to respond to international business opportunities.
EDC uses its unique trade knowledge and financial solutions to support and develop sustainable trade between Canada and the world, and to enhance Canada’s competitiveness in the international marketplace.
