Passionate about having impact and helping entrepreneurs grow their business? Join our team as a Business Advisor!

The Business Advisor, High Impact Firms (BA) – BDC Advisory Services, serves as a key member of the delivery team on the Growth Driver Program (GDP), BDC’s flagship Advisory solution. 

As a “second eyes advisor”, the BA works in close collaboration with the Executive Advisor, a highly experienced senior executive, in delivering the mandate. Under the leadership of the Executive Advisor, the BA conducts research and analysis to generate insights, co-creates customer journey as well as the deliverables. The BA works directly with the senior leadership team of some of the most promising businesses in Canada to help them assess their situation and identify growth opportunities. The BA is also responsible for managing the sequence of work involved in the project.


The High-Impact Firms team supports a select group of firms with the ambition and potential to become sustainable leaders in their industries. 

The GDP is a transformational journey for CEOs and their businesses.  It is an intense multi-year advisory relationship between an experienced delivery team and the client’s executive leadership team.  The team doesn’t just deliver a report, they support the client through implementation.

The delivery team is composed of a senior, highly experienced Executive Advisor, who has been in similar situations as the CEO.  Complementing the team is the Business Advisor, an experienced, whip-smart advisor who has the horsepower to generate key insights and help lead the client on their GDP journey.

Over the past 6 years that we have offered the GDP, we have worked with more than 200 companies across Canada having a significant impact along the way.
