A Whole-of-Government Approach to Trade
Established in 1946, the CCC is a federal Crown corporation mandated to facilitate international trade on behalf of Canadian industry, particularly with governments of foreign countries. The CCC reports to the Parliament of Canada through the Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade and is an integral part of the Government of Canada’s International Trade Portfolio. The portfolio also includes Global Affairs Canada and Export Development Canada.
The Government of Canada is committed to pursuing a progressive trade agenda to support all segments of society in taking advantage of the economic opportunities flowing from trade and investment. CCC works hand-in-hand with its International Trade Portfolio partners and with other key stakeholders to ensure its efforts to assist Canadian suppliers and international buyers are aligned with the priorities of the Government of Canada.
