After 76 years of existence, BDC's role remains unchanged: To support entrepreneurs and create prosperity by providing the support they need to achieve their ambitions. Solidly established in the Outaouais region through its Gatineau business center, BDC serves more than 600 clients throughout the territory.

A team close to you 

Entrepreneurs can count on an experienced team. The director of the business center, Renaud Fréchette, has been with BDC since 2012. Jerome, Jessy, Véronique, Sébastien and Dominique support growing businesses in the region by offering them adapted solutions. They are supported by Sean, Éric, Alexandra, Gaston and Martine who put their knowledge to work for the region's entrepreneurs to ensure their success. Thanks to their network of contacts, they know how to direct their clients to the most appropriate resources.

Varied and adapted solutions

BDC's financial solutions are varied and adapted to the needs of entrepreneurs in order to help them realize their various growth projects.

"Whether it's for the acquisition or expansion of a building, the purchase of new equipment, the purchase of new technologies or the integration of software, BDC is there," says Renaud Fréchette.  

Sustained growth 

The Outaouais team is particularly aware of the importance of the technological shift.

"The companies that will adapt best are those that have already begun their technological transformation," warns Mr. Fréchette. BDC consultants can help companies make changes in their operations to cope with the sector's sustained growth, by automating certain processes, for example. 

Business acquisition

Several companies will change hands in the coming years due to the retirement of their founders. BDC positions itself as a key player in acquisition and business succession projects. Indeed, BDC's experts can offer adapted financing thanks to a complete range of solutions that allow you to undertake different projects.
