Council Overview

At the Canada China Business Council membership means business. We are a truly bilateral non-profit organization with six offices in both Canada and China. Founded in 1978, we have been the leading voice of Canadian businesses in China for over 37 years and provide the knowledge and connections you need to succeed in China and Canada. In addition to its focused and practical services, the CCBC is also the voice of the Canadian business community on issues affecting Canada-China business, trade and investment.

CCBC members include some of the largest and best-known Canadian and Chinese firms, as well as small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), entrepreneurs, and non-profit organizations. CCBC also offers a "China Watcher" program for individuals interested in staying up-to-date about Canada-China business relations.

CCBC members represent a wide range of sectors, including financial services, professional services, manufacturing, construction, transportation, oil and gas, natural resources, ICT, public sector and education.

In addition to its head office in Toronto, the CCBC also has offices and staff in Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary, Beijing and Shanghai. The CCBC’s network of staff offers programs and services in both Canada and China, and introduces members to opportunities in China’s emerging markets. The CCBC also operates a chapter in Beijing, offering a range of events and broad networking opportunities at the local level.

Through its member services and events, the CCBC provides its member companies with business insight, intelligence, connections, and networks that help resolve the inevitable challenges of doing business in another country.
