Accelerating Canada’s future trade competitiveness

For Canada to regain its standing in international trade, we need to maintain our current trade performance and catalyze net new growth. And we must ensure that the growth is sustainable and contributes to long-term prosperity.


Pathways to sustainable growth

Our 2030 strategy aims to increase the success of our customers, our ability to meaningfully enhance Canada’s trade competitiveness, and our contribution toward a more equitable and sustainable economy. 

In developing EDC’s 2030 strategy, we evaluated the emerging sectors and high-growth markets with the strongest economic potential for Canadian businesses over the long term, in line with values that put ESG at the core of everything we do. We believe that sharpening our focus on these sectors and markets will increase our ability to reinforce and accelerate Canada’s future trade competitiveness.
