In January 2018, a new Canadian Development Finance Institution (“DFI”), operating as FinDev Canada, was established. Headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, FinDev Canada is a subsidiary of Export Development Canada (“EDC”), which operates as Canada’s export credit agency, whose mandate is distinct from that of FinDev Canada. Canada’s new DFI provides a range of financing solutions including debt, equity and guarantees to achieve clear development objectives by supporting private sector companies in emerging market countries in Latin America, the Caribbean and Sub-Sahara Africa.
The private sector has a key role to play as it is a fundamental driver of economic growth and development, and DFIs are critical instruments to facilitate and optimize the contribution of private investment to development. They respond to the specific challenges faced by companies operating in developing countries in getting access to the finance necessary to grow their business and they do so while remaining financially self-sustaining.
As a new entrant, FinDev Canada aspires to contribute to the field of private sector development finance with an innovative, collaborative and business-minded approach. Through its action, it will seek to generate positive impacts in terms of job creation, climate change mitigation and women economic empowerment, in a manner consistent with Canada’s international development mandate.
This is a unique opportunity to join a small team of highly talented professionals whose mission is to turn a project into a successful, ground breaking organization whose activities will contribute to changing people’s lives in developing countries.
