Our disclosure policy directs how we publicly release significant quantities of information on transactions at aggregate and individual levels.


 The policy strikes a balance between sharing information that enhances our public accountability, and protecting the commercially confidential information entrusted to us by our clients.

The application of the policy is overseen by our compliance officer and monitored for compliance by our internal audit and evaluation department. We have committed to reviewing the policy on a regular basis. The latest policy came into effect on November 1, 2010, and increased the level of detail disclosed for Category A projects.

As per the Export Development Act, our auditor is the Auditor General of Canada. The auditor general audits our annual financial statements and performs a special examination on our activities every five years. The appropriateness of our Transparency and Disclosure Policy, and our adherence to it, may form part of a special examination.
