Disclosing relevant information is key element of accountability. As per our Disclosure Policy, we disclose the following:
D1. Aggregate Quarterly Reporting
We disclose information on our insurance and financing activities in a way that protects the competitive position of our customers and the confidential information that they entrust to us in the normal course of business. Aggregated information disclosed normally contains at least 10 data points. Information is updated quarterly, no later than 60 days after each quarter's end. We report business facilitated by:
Country or region in which business is concluded
Region of Canada (exporter)
Canadian sectors and sub-sectors
Type of EDC product or service (PDF)
Last updated: December 31, 2015
D2. Individual Transaction Reporting
We report individual transaction information on all financing (including guarantees), political risk insurance to lenders, and equity transactions. Individual transaction information will be posted after signing (normally within 90 days).
Transactions are often governed by binding confidentiality agreements. We are committed to seeking the necessary legal consents in order to minimize the number of exceptions to this type of disclosure and exceptions are generally limited to cases where there is a compelling reason for confidentiality.
The following table contains transactions signed within the past 15 months. For information on transactions previously listed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual Transaction Information
D3. Environmental & Social Reporting
Where we are considering support in the form of financing, political risk insurance or equity, to the sponsor of a project classified as Category A under our Environmental and Social Review Directive, we seek consent from clients to inform the public via our website that we are considering this support. We also provide information on signed Category A and B projects, including the environmental standards used to review those projects and the information reviewed.
When we are considering support, we require that all project sponsors of Category A projects not located in a G7 country to: (i) publicly release available environmental impact information; and (ii) consent to informing the public via its web site that it is considering support to such Category A project. We seek similar information for projects located in G-7 countries, but this is not a condition of our support.
Category A projects under consideration
If we are unable to provide public notification 30 days in advance of its support for a Category A project in a non-G-7 country, a justification is provided.
Category A projects where prior disclosure was less than 30 days
Under our Disclosure Policy, we provide detail on Category A and B projects approved for support, including applicable environmental standards and type of environmental information reviewed.
Signed Category A projects prior to November 1, 2010
Signed Category A projects after November 1, 2010
Signed Category B projects
The information disclosed above also includes transactions related to Category A and B projects. Categorization is a screening tool undertaken early on when we are first approached to support a project. Categorization is made on the basis of potential impacts, prior to the consideration of mitigation measures. Information requirements and the depth of EDC’s review are linked to the project categorization. The categories are:
Category A: projects with potential significant adverse environmental or social effects that are sensitive, diverse, or unprecedented.
Category B: projects with potential environmental or social effects that are less adverse than the potential effects of Category A projects.
Category C: projects with minimal or no adverse environmental or social effects.
