Hong Kong Canada Business Association (HKCBA)

Founded in 1984, the Hong Kong-Canada Business Association is one of the largest bilateral trade associations in Canada, connecting over 1,500 members in the business community across the country. Together with the partners of our Hong Kong Family, the Association assists members with their business expansion to Hong Kong and Asia by creating opportunities for knowledge sharing, networking, business planning and development.

For the past 30 years, the HKCBA has been working continuously to promote Hong Kong-Canada bilateral trade. Our milestone anniversary this year is a great opportunity to review our past accomplishments and look forward to greater successes.

Vancouver was one of the first HKCBA sections founded in 1984 and grown to become a key organization within the local business community over the years. The increased focus on Canadian trade and investment with Hong Kong and Asia in the 80s and 90s resulted in the need to develop closer ties between the two regions. As a result, our organization was able to use this opportunity to provide a forum for our members and the business community to discuss trade issues, exchange international business best practices and promote bilateral trade policies. Today, the HKCBA is Hong Kong’s largest and most active overseas trade association.
