What is the Export Guarantee Program?

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

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 can’t exceed US$10 million.

• Fees are determined based on your credit rating, duration of coverage and the amount of financing needed.

• From now until September 2020, EGP fees will be deferred six months to provide short-term relief to your business.*

If your business needs access to working capital to cover payroll or operational costs during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may be eligible for the EDC BCAP Guarantee.

*This adjustment has been made to support businesses facing challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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.
