BDC among Best Employers for New Canadians

MONTREAL, April 2 - The Business Development Bank of Canada
(BDC) is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as one of the Best
Employers for New Canadians. The competition is managed by the editors of
Canada's Top 100 employers in partnership with TRIEC, a non-profit

and creating inclusive workplaces.
"This recognition is a source of pride for us," says Mary Karamanos, BDC

a diverse environment simply makes good business sense. A more diverse
workforce brings added energy and creativity to our organization and helps us
reach out to clients across all spectrums of Canadian society."

consecutive year in recognition of the interesting programs it offers to
assist new Canadians in making the transition to a new workplace and a new
