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 as our processes evolve.
