Welcome to the German Canadian Business Association

We promote cultural, business & professional interests in the German-speaking Community in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The German Canadian Business Association of British Columbia is a non-political and non-for-profit organization located in Vancouver, BC. It was incorporated under The Societies Act of the Province of British Columbia on December 13, 1963.

Focused on creating business and professional connections among German-speaking Canadians and anybody interested in making connections with German-speaking Canadians in the province, we organize events and meetings with speakers.

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.
