BENEFACTOR MEMBERSHIP

The CCBC Benefactor is member category comprised of companies that support CCBC staffing and services geared towards small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Canada and China. Member feedback tells us that the work we do with SMEs places them firmly on a path to success – benefiting all members and undoubtedly raising the bar for Sino-Canadian trade and investment. The new Benefactor category is a key step towards fulfilling SMEs’ requests for increased assistance, and attracting Canadian SMEs that are not yet active in the Council.

 

Benefactors receive front-of-the-line member-benefits that reflect their commitment to and interest in CCBC’s activities. Benefactors will also receive additional benefits, as described below.
