Support for businesses impacted by COVID-19.


Have your clients reached their maximum debt load? Do they need more working capital to help fuel growth or expand their businesses? BDC can provide flexible financing to complement an existing line of credit and help provide the cash they need.

Financing can help cover

  • The costs of buying commercial real estate, a business or equipment
  • Expansion or commercialization projects
  • Working capital financing to increase inventory, develop new products & marketing plans, and implement quality solutions such as ISO 9000
  • R&D and innovation expenses
  • E-Business or exporting efforts
  • Setting-up a distribution network

Helping your clients reach their potential

You can rely on BDC when your clients:

  • Reach the limit of their line of credit due to fast growth or efforts to innovate
  • Have a project with a security shortfall
  • Need financing with no fixed assets as guarantees
  • Are starting up with realistic market and sales potential

BDC is a higher-risk lender, so we work with you to help your clients when their financial needs can not be met by traditional financing.

Our comprehensive approach to risk assessment means that when we evaluate a business, we also consider:

  • The strength of the management team
  • Profitability
  • The calibre of financial control
  • Competitive advantage

What we need to evaluate a project

NB: Additional supporting documents may be required in some cases.
