What we do

Our approach

At FinDev Canada, we value equality, inclusion and the environment. We recognize the urgency of climate action and the opportunity to achieve greater development outcomes by promoting gender equality. Climate is the existential threat, while gender offers an existential opportunity.  We are proud to play an important role in addressing both.

By providing support to the private sector in developing countries, we intend to have a favourable impact on market development, women’s economic empowerment, and climate action. We achieve this by focusing on three priority sectors:

FinDev Canada has a nimble and innovative approach to business, focusing on the needs of private sector borrowers and companies investing in developing countries, all while concentrating on business activities that offer significant economic and social impact.
