Resources for every stage of exporting
How does EDC help women-owned businesses?
EDC’s job is to take on risk, so you can grow your business with confidence and experience the export impact. We’re committed to helping women-owned companies succeed internationally by making global trade safer for you. We offer tools and resources to help you learn about new markets for your products and services, access funding to grow, and protect your business. Working with us also provides an opportunity to build relationships with our global network of partners and trade advisors, as well as other women-owned businesses, associations and financial institutions.
Why should women-owned businesses export?
Exporting can be profitable for businesses of all sizes and is often one of the best ways to expand your business. Canada is only a small part of the global marketplace (less than 2%), so doing business in other countries:
- increases your customer base;
- gives you new revenue streams; and
- makes your business more resilient and sustainable.
