Backgrounder - Canadian Commercial Corporation


The Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) is a crown corporation under the international trade portfolio supporting Canadian exporters in markets abroad. The minister of international trade is accountable to Parliament for the governance and performance of the CCC.

The chairperson provides strategic and corporate planning and direction, implements modern corporate governance principles and best practices, and serves as CCC’s liaison with senior government officials.

The appointment of the CCC chairperson was a result of the Government of Canada’s new recruitment approach for Governor-in-Council appointments. This new approach ensures an open, transparent and merit-based process that attracts high-quality candidates while reflecting gender parity and Canada’s diversity.
