Export Development Canada (EDC) understands that these continue to be challenging times for you. In the midst of recovering from the impacts of COVID-19 on your business, you’re now faced with the mounting pressures of high inflation, extreme supply chain disruptions and pent-up consumer demand. That’s why we’ve developed the EDC Trade Recovery Guarantee. It’s a flexible working capital solution that can help you stabilize, rebuild and get back on track with your plans for international growth.
