The Canada China Business Council (CCBC) invites you to participate in a Business Development Forum in Shenzhen on December 10 and in Guangzhou on December 12. Canadian delegates will be able to meet with Chinese companies and explore opportunities for collaboration, trade, and investment. This program is designed to promote Canadian projects and market information to Chinese partners, and establish new business connections.


The forum begins with a seminar that will be presented, in Shenzhen, by McMillan LLP and the provincial offices of Alberta, British Columbia, and Quebec.


Following the seminar, there will be industry breakout sessions for matchmaking opportunities. Participating Canadian delegates can present information about their company and meet with potential Chinese partners identified according to their industry.


The matchmaking sessions will focus on the following industries:

1) Green building technologies and construction materials, with products such as wood, new materials, energy conservation, waste reduction or emissions reduction;

2) Consumer products such as food products or consumer brands looking to expand into Chinese markets;

3) Life Sciences such as med tech, pharmaceutical, and research collaborations.


Travel and accommodation funding is available for qualified companies through Global Opportunities for Associations (GOA).


Canadian companies looking to attend these events to increase their product trade into China may qualify for funding from the GOA. Possible funding covers 50% of the cost of travel to and accommodation in China. For more information and to find out if your company qualifies, contact Travis Joern at Travis[at]
