  • The terms of your financial institution’s foreign exchange facility agreement

If you’re a current customer, please connect with your EDC account manager to discuss your needs. Otherwise, call us at 1-800-229-0575 on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET or send us a question.

  • Foreign exchange derivative contracts, with contract durations of up to three years
  • Foreign exchange derivative contracts outstanding and entered into during the validity period of the guarantee

EDC is dedicated to supporting Canadian businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We’ve adjusted the Foreign Exchange Facility Guarantee (FXG) to meet the current needs of Canadian businesses.

EDC has traditionally focused on supporting Canadian companies that export their products and services. Due to the pandemic, this has changed. Until the end of 2021, EDC will also be offering this solution to companies that don’t export.
