Who we are

We're go getters. Innovators. Growth engineers.

We're a different kind of bank.

We're BDC.


BDC’s mission is to help create and develop Canadian businesses through financing, capital and advisory services, with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises.

As a complementary lender, we offer loans and investments that fill out or complete services available from other financial institutions.


We have more than 75 years of experience working with small and medium-sized businesses. Our 2,600 dedicated and experienced employees help 95,000 entrepreneurs reach their full potential from a network of business centres across the country. Our head office is in Montreal.


As a commercial Crown corporation, BDC has a single shareholder—the Government of Canada.


Our employees are our ambassadors. BDC’s Code of Conduct, Ethics and Values (PDF) helps our employees clearly understand what is expected of them and apply these principles in everything they do. We also have a policy that encourages employees to come forward and disclose wrongdoing in the workplace.
