BDC


Who we are
We are a different kind of bank

We are Canada’s business development bank and the only financial institution devoted exclusively to entrepreneurs.

We help create and develop strong Canadian businesses through financing, advisory services and capital, with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises. 

We support entrepreneurs in all industries and at all stages of development from 123 business centres across Canada and online at bdc.ca.
We’re committed to the long-term success of Canadian entrepreneurs and we understand that a business is more than just dollars and cents.
We complement the role played by private-sector financial institutions and have been serving Canadian entrepreneurs since 1944.
We are a financially sustainable Crown corporation and we operate at arm’s length from our sole shareholder, the Government of Canada.

Our national network of consultants and highly experienced specialists can help your business scale up, be more productive, innovate and globalize.

Get objective, practical advice on a range of subjects to help solve management challenges across your business.
