Equality isn’t just a women’s issue. It’s also a business challenge. Research shows that advancing women’s economic equality will benefit all Canadians, adding about $150 billion in incremental GDP by 2026. Yet only 11% of Canadian women-owned businesses are currently exporting.

We want women to know that there are customers outside of Canada who want to pay for their products and services. We know that companies that export have greater chances of success and increasing their numbers would create jobs and have a positive impact on our GDP. Women’s business success is Canada’s success, and EDC is here to help them reach their international goals.
