EDC Talks Nuclear Export Opportunities

By John Stewart
Director, Policy and Research
Canadian Nuclear Association

OCI President Ron Oberth and CNA staff recently participated in a detailed and constructive conversation about export financing with knowledgeable experts.

On June 5, Export Development Canada, along with the CNA and OCI, hosted Successful Exporting for Canadian Nuclear Companies, an informative two-and-a-half hour presentation and luncheon discussing how companies can grow their business by exporting abroad.

About 20 guests took part in the event at EDC’s downtown Toronto office. It is part of the CNA’s efforts to promote members’ awareness of international opportunities.

The conversation covered EDC’s general mandate and role, client eligibility and the nuts-and-bolts of EDC’s services. To access EDC’s services, companies need not export directly. They only have to be part of an export supply chain.

EDC officers Line Charbonneau, Chris Evans and Richard Ross participated, as did Louie DiPalma of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, who described services available from the provincial level.

The CNA hopes to host another event like this in the months to come.
