Welcome to all of our members, potential members and friends

We promote cultural, business & professional interests in the German-speaking Community.

The objectives of our Association are to establish, maintain and conduct a business and professional association for the accommodation, recreation and convenience of the members of the Association and to promote their cultural, business and professional interests. We also want to further good relations amongst the German-speaking population of Canada and between it and the public at large. Finally, we establish and support or aid in the establishment and support of association, institutions, funds and conveniences calculated to benefit residents of British Columbia.

We initiate or sponsor educational meetings, guest speakers, conferences, dinners, concerts and pub nights for our members & friends in the local German community and provide information on cultural events, educational resources and business networking with respect to the German language and traditions of Germany.

Become a member!  Network with other business owners.  Support the German Community.  Raise funds for charity.  Share your expertise. Donate prize draw items, to give out at pub nights, as door prizes or as a raffle prize for the Christmas Gala.

What is New?

We all recognize the unique roles Presidents of non-profits play in promoting and advocating for quality business networking opportunities. Beatrice Schreiber, our long-serving President has been an adviser, a decision maker, a problem solver, a leader, and an tireless advocate of the GCBA.

It should be noted that our President is also a volunteer who puts in countless hours in meetings and in the community organizing & planning events. Being a President is a challenging role, an important role, to help lead our executive as they work hard to make members feel part of the association. We would like to wish Beatrice Schreiber very warm birthday wishes and another successful year running the German Canadian Business Association. Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag!
