EDC provides relief for Canadian exporters:

Starting March 24, EDC (Export Development Canada) is stepping up to help Canadian exporters by:

  • Offering their bank a guarantee on loans of up to $5M so that companies can access more cash immediately (for more details, contact your financial institution directly).

  • Providing timely and relevant information through our insights, tools and advice like Export Help Hub. Through a MyEDC account Canadian businesses can access free services and information.

  • Cover losses for goods shipped even if the buyer has not accepted the goods, subject to terms.

  • Waive the 60-day waiting period for claims. 

  • For more information, please click here. 


Cambridge Chamber's Certificate of Origin Program:

To ensure minimal disruption to your organization, we are still currently signing certificate of origins. Please note that CO's are only available for signature on Monday to Friday from 10am - 4pm. Additional cautionary measures are being put in place to ensure our staff's well-being is a priority. Please email tess@cambridgechamber.com for more information, or to book an appointment.
