The quest for a sustainable, low-carbon economy has presented a compelling opportunity for Canadian enterprises. With the high demand for cleaner technologies across several key industries, it is now the right time to share Canadian innovation with the world. The Export Development Canada (EDC) is keen on helping those clean technology firms in Canada, irrespective of their sizes, achieve success on the universal stage by providing the right kind of financing solutions, trading knowledge, insurance, equity and connections.
According to EDC Economics, the cleantech industry in Canada is overflowing with entrepreneurial activities and innovation with an estimated annual revenue of $13 billion and 82,000 employees. However, its long-term strength depends upon the export sales. EDC announced its annual Cleantech Export Week in November with an aim to connect Canada’s cleantech ecosystem for sharing their insights and opportunities. The export event will also discuss exporting and financial solutions. This discussion is critical for all businesses due to the huge economic impact that COVID-19 has had in the past 18 months.
