Trade finance

On 2 October 2017, Export Development Bank Canada (EDC) announced export financing for Enbridge Inc. relating to exports to the United States. The stated purpose of the transaction is support for Canadian direct investment abroad to Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P., United States.

EDC publishes value ranges rather than precise values for the projects it finances. The present project will receive an amount in the range Can.$100-250 million. Taking the lowest possible amount, in this case, Can.$100 million (approx. U.S.$79.51 million), is our conservative estimate of the financing received.

The GTA includes state guarantees and other financial incentives that are likely to affect the restructuring and performance of firms facing international competition, whether from imports, in export markets and from foreign subsidiaries.
