The Canadian Business Council Abu Dhabi embarked on its journey in March 2005 with the aim of smartly connecting business people from Canada and UAE to opportunities in the region today and tomorrow.
We strive to promote business relations, commerce and investment between Canada and the UAE with a particular focus on the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Our membership includes Canadians as well as interested non-Canadian members which are leading corporates, executives, decision makers and professionals working in a wide array of industries. They are motivated towards furthering business relationships between Canada and the UAE and promoting Canadian businesses and products.
CBC provides opportunities for business executives to meet on a regular basis and to exchange information about opportunities in the region. Such regular meetings and events, and ease of access to an online directory of our members help develop an engaged community that provides a great deal of support to each other.
CBC also holds seminars and workshops, shares appropriate sources of information and consultation that educate our members and guests regarding trade and investment opportunities, practices and regulations in Canada and the UAE and guidance on best practices in various business fields.
As a link with organizations in Canada, we are also dedicated to the development of trade and corporate investment between Canada and the UAE and to provide assistance to the Canadian companies who are establishing or contemplating to establish a trading base in this country.
We have a close working relationship with local UAE and Canadian governments and organizations such as the Canadian Embassy in Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce, the CBC in Dubai, and the Canadian Club, a social group for Canadians.
CBC offers various categories of membership – individual, corporate, gold, platinum. Members can enjoy a wide range of benefits and services.
