We are Canada’s export credit agency. Our job is to support and develop Canada’s export trade by helping Canadian companies respond to international business opportunities. We are a self-financing, Crown corporation that operates at arm's length from the Government.
We provide knowledge, risk mitigation and access to working capital solutions to Canadian exporters and investors and their international buyers. We also support Canadian direct investment abroad and investment into Canada. Much of our business is done in partnership with other financial institutions and through collaboration with the Government of Canada.
Since we were founded in 1944, we have facilitated more than $1.3 trillion in exports and foreign investment by Canadian companies. This is important because Canada’s economy relies on trade; one in three jobs depends on exports. Given our small domestic market, Canadian businesses have to think globally to compete and grow.
