CCBC Membership

CCBC provides services and support to more than 300 member organizations and to over 2,500 business professionals in both countries. We work with organizations big and small from all sectors of the Canadian economy as they enter and operate in China. We also guide Chinese investors as they enter the Canadian market so they can operate successfully in Canada.

CCBC was founded in 1978 as a business association for leaders in Canada-China business, trade and investment and in March, 2016, we established a Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Beijing. We inform Canadians on fast-growing opportunities with China, facilitate the success of Canadian business in China, and advocate on issues affecting Canada-China relations. We are a trusted source of information and opinions on Canada-China business and policy.
