Export Development Canada sets out its vision to meet the evolving needs of Canadian exporters

Today, Export Development Canada (EDC) provided its submission to the 2018 Legislative Review of the Export Development Act.

The Act requires the Government of Canada to undertake a Legislative Review every 10 years to examine different aspects of the role, functions, and governance of EDC. The review will also assess the types of services EDC provides to Canadian exporters to ensure it has the ability to meet evolving business needs in a changing global context.

“This review comes at an important time,” said Benoit Daignault, EDC’s President and CEO. “EDC’s services have never been in higher demand as exporters navigate the new complexities, risks, and opportunities of a transforming global marketplace. EDC must be positioned to respond to the needs of an expanding range of customers and provide the proper support no matter where they are in their export journey and ensure a level playing field as they compete around the world.”
