How trade-confident are you?

Twice a year, EDC publishes its Trade Confidence Index (TCI), a survey of Canadian companies’ confidence in domestic and international sales opportunities over the next six months.

While the score is based on the national average of Canadian businesses, we can learn a lot from trade confidence variations between companies of different sizes, sectors and regions. For economists, it can show the root of low trade confidence. For companies like yours, it can show you how you compare to your competitors.

Does your business share the national sentiment? Are you keeping ahead of the competition? See how your trade confidence compares to other companies similar to yours, so you can make smarter business decisions and be at your most competitive.
