We are Canada’s development bank. We exist to support entrepreneurs. BDC’s mission is to help create and develop Canadian businesses through financing, growth and business transition capital, venture 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.

Applications housed on this platform provide a unique opportunity for First Nations, Métis and Inuit job seekers to have the option of sharing their whole selves with potential employers, including their lived experience and transferable skills.
