Disclosure of Information

For information on our disclosure practices, please visit our Disclosure page.

Stakeholder Engagement

In addition to our CSR Advisory Council, we regularly hold public consultations and information sessions in order to connect and talk with our stakeholders on issues of mutual concern. We also conduct Annual Public Meetings to hear from members of the public.

Industry Stakeholder Panel

Our Industry Stakeholder Panel brings together national business and industry associations with shared interests in Canadian trade and investment. During annual meetings members identify common priorities, competitive issues and market developments, examine questions of major significance to Canada’s exporters and draw attention to areas where Canada is falling behind.

Due Diligence

At Export Development Canada we are committed to sustainable and responsible business practices. Any company that is seeking corporate financing will be assessed through a review process called ‘due diligence’. This process considers a number of different factors including environmental, social and business ethics related risks. EDC continues to evolve and improve our due diligence process based on new best practices and the developing risk management fields, we will update this process below as our processes evolve.

The map below is a high-level overview and does not reflect the full details of analysis performed or the credit analysis process.

From Prospect to Customer - EDC's Due Diligence Path

We always welcome feedback from all stakeholders, if you have any questions about EDC’s due diligence, this process, or our business, contact
