Transparency and Disclosure

Our Transparency and Disclosure Policy details how we publicly release information on transactions at aggregate and individual levels.

 

As Canada’s export credit agency, we understand that transparency and disclosure are integral to EDC’s business, to facilitating accountability and oversight, and to building trust and promoting meaningful dialogue with our stakeholders. 

EDC’s Transparency and Disclosure Policy sets out a framework for the proactive disclosure of information pertaining to our business in a manner that balances the confidentiality required by our customers with the information sought by interested Canadians. It is intended to provide clarity for all audiences, including our employees, customers, members of civil society, and the general public.

The Policy, initially introduced in 2001, was updated in 2020 to help make EDC more open, clear and responsive to the needs of its stakeholders.
