Testimonials

Jamie Hoobanoff
BDC not only helped me with financing, they provided me with tools and resources that helped structure the business and gave me the freedom I needed to build my company.
Phyllis Day Chief
Be enthusiastic about your product. You’ll have good days and bad days, but believing in your product will help carry you through.
Marie-Claude Plante
I called upon the experts at BDC because of their experience with SMEs and because SME development is their passion. My business is financially sound; all that was missing was a boost to help me make strategic decisions. The BDC consultant helped me to clarify and structure my objectives and even encouraged me to aim higher!
