Political risk insurance

Export Development Canada, Government of Canada

Investing in or exporting to foreign markets can provide many opportunities for your growing business. However, it can also expose your business to political risks.

Policies are flexible, and you will be protected for most of your losses. This may increase the confidence of bankers or business partners who are concerned about risk.

Types of political risks covered include:

  • Creeping or outright expropriation
  • Political violence
  • Conversion
  • Transfer
  • Repossession
  • Non-payment by a government
