Export Guarantee Program EDC

Export Guarantee Program

Let us share the risk with your bank to help you get the financing you need.

What is the Export Guarantee Program?

Our Export Guarantee Program can help your bank provide you with additional access to financing. We share the risk with your bank by providing a guarantee on the money you borrow, encouraging them to increase your access to working capital.

Manage your cash flow

Get more working capital financing to manage your day-to-day operating costs, via an increase to your operating line, a seasonal bulge or pre-shipment financing.

Grow your international business

Access more financing to expand sales into a new market, buy new equipment, or locate your inventory closer to your buyers.

Support your international investments

We work with you and your bank to increase borrowing capacity to support your investments outside of Canada, such as setting up a foreign affiliate or acquiring or expanding a business in a foreign market.

Take on more international business with the Export Guarantee Program

The value of the guarantee can vary depending on the type and size of the loan:

  • EDC’s total exposure under one or multiple guarantees in support of your business cannot exceed $10 million (USD)
  • fees are determined based on your credit rating, duration of coverage and the amount of financing needed

EDC wants to ensure the Export Guarantee Program is the best option for your business. We look at the amount of international sales you have produced over time and your financial institution’s lending agreement, as well as other factors.
