What is BDC Small Business Week?

BDC Small Business Week is an annual celebration of entrepreneurship that the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) has organized for almost 40 years.


BDC business centres in British Columbia’s Lower Fraser Valley first pooled their resources to organize a week of activities for entrepreneurs. BDC Small Business Week was officially launched across Canada in 1981.
