Export Development Canada (EDC)… announced that is has parlayed the success of its annual Canadians at Work: 50 International Infrastructure Projects publication into a new online resource for Canadian companies.
“Connecting Canadian companies to global infrastructure projects, and to other Canadian companies already involved in them, is another opportunity to help create trade opportunities for Canada’s infrastructure sector,” said Francoise Faverjon-Fortin, Vice-President, Infrastructure and Environment, EDC.
EDC developed the site to deliver three key benefits for Canadian companies:
- First, companies can register their projects online, giving them international exposure in the infrastructure sector.
- Second, companies can be alerted to new opportunities being presented to EDC and DFAIT through local networks around the world.
- Third, companies can research and learn about other Canadian companies in the infrastructure sector, allowing for information-sharing and networking opportunities.
As Canadian companies register their companies and their projects online, the website will evolve and expand its network. More than four new projects will be posted monthly, as will a feature article discussing a specific area of Canadian innovation or expertise in the infrastructure sector.
“Enhancing the ability of Canadian companies to identify and facilitate new partnerships is an important part of tapping into global supply chains, particularly in the infrastructure sector,” said Ms. Faverjon-Fortin. “The website will help showcasing Canadian expertise and innovation towards these ends.”
