Dear Mr. Reilly-King
This is to acknowledge receipt of your letter dated July 28, 2003, and enclosed documentation. I acknowledge that your letter was also copied to Darlene Pearson, Director, Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Auditor General of Canada.
You do not note in your letter whether you attempted to resolve your concerns with Export Development Canada (EDC) by any other means. You have referred the matter to ma as Compliance Officer for EDC.
Pursuant to the resolution guidelines, upon receipt of such a letter, I must conduct an initial appraisal of your concerns to establish whether they fall within the mandate of EDC’s Compliance Program.
You will receive a subsequent letter from me upon the completion of this initial appraisal. In the meantime, I encourage you to access EDC’s website to review the plethora of information regarding the Compliance Program.
Alison C. Lawford, LL. B., LL. M.
