Partnership preferred philosophy
When we work on a transaction, we prefer to do it in explicit partnership with the private sector. We let the private sector player set the terms and we add capacity and share the risk. This encourages the private sector to move into new areas, leaving us to move to new frontiers to create new trade for Canada.
We have also signed a protocol with the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), to ensure that Canadian companies looking to expand their business in global markets have access to the services and financial capacity that best suit their needs. The protocol aims to improve the coordination between our two Crown corporations by placing more emphasis on guiding new customers towards the core strengths of each organization.
