On February 2, 2011, Canada's Export Controls Division (ECD) announced the availability of a new multidestination export permit for the export or transfer of information security goods and technology to the countries of the European Union (except Cyprus) and Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland.

Canadian exporters of encryption-related items have been facing significant challenges with transfers of these items from Canada and have been expressing concerns regarding the impact of these controls on their competitive position in the international marketplace. In response, ECD has been considering means of facilitating the permit process while still complying with Canada's international commitments in this area.
