Protect your margins with the Foreign Exchange Facility Guarantee

Avoid posting collateral as payment assurance for your foreign exchange contract provider and keep your cash free for doing business.

Benefit from easier access to FX risk management with the Foreign Exchange Facility Guarantee

Eligibility is determined by EDC based on:

  • the managerial, technical and financial capabilities of your company
  • foreign exchange derivative contracts, with a duration up to three years

EDC is dedicated to supporting Canadian businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re adjusting the Foreign Exchange Facility Guarantee (FXG) as part of the $65-billion federal Business Credit Availability Program (BCAP):

  • From now until September 2020, payment of new FXG fees will be paused for six months, giving some short-term relief to your business.
