Get more working capital for your business

Financing is one of the biggest challenges business owners face, especially when they want to expand into new markets or increase their cash flow to complete an international contract.

Whether you’re exporting products, services or experiences, Export Development Canada (EDC) can help unlock the working capital you need to manage cash flow, expand to new markets, or support international investments.
