Business Development Bank of Canada


The Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) is a Crown corporation with a national network of over 100 business centres and 1,900 employees dedicated to helping Canadian businesses reach their full potential.

BDC’s community involvement goes beyond supporting entrepreneurs. BDC employees’ cause of choice is the fight against cancer. BDC proudly supports their employee cause through a Canada-wide campaign of corporate donations and fundraising activities to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society. These activities began in early 2012 as part of a 3-year partnership with the Society.

Through team participation in Relay For Life, special event fundraisers and corporate donations, BDC’s total contribution to the Society is more than $73,000. We celebrate with the BDC team members for their successes and for their enthusiasm in embracing our partnership.
