BDC Canada Frees up 200 Million for Small Businesses
The Business Development Bank is a Canadian Federal government corporation which was created to provide investment funding for small business and medium size enterprises. Initially, BDC was more about helping Canadian companies with export potential. The company just announced a new program to provide funding for Canadian small businesses that need help even if their market is only the Canadian domestic market. However, we all know that increasing demand for Canadian property is coming from outside Canada.
