EDC’s mission is to help Canadian companies go, grow and succeed in markets around the world. We encourage them to take their first international steps, knowing that we’ve got their back. We provide them with the financial solutions they need to compete in global markets. And we draw on our international connections and expertise to guide them to new markets, customers and opportunities.

Corporate social responsibility figured prominently in EDC’s 2018 story, so it is fitting that it has a place of prominence in this report – EDC’s first-ever integrated annual report.
