Business Development Canada (BDC) Resources

As Canada’s bank for entrepreneurs, BDC’s purpose is to ensure that all entrepreneurs have access to the resources, financing, advice, networks and tools they need to succeed.

Diversity and inclusion are part of our business strategy. Our commitment starts internally with a measurable action plan and extends to our Client Diversity Strategy, which ensures all entrepreneurs can thrive in the Canadian entrepreneurial ecosystem.

In partnership with public and private sector players, we take a relationship-driven approach to help fill market gaps affecting underserved groups of business owners, including Indigenous, women, Black, LGBTQ2+ and other underserved entrepreneurs. Our commitment is to listen to what entrepreneurs need, learn by working with organizations that serve these communities like de Sedulous Women Leaders and then act to provide tangible solutions. In addition, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive supply chain through our supplier diversity program and helping to promote the value of diversity certification.
