The British Canadian Business AssociationBritish Canadian Business Association

The British Canadian Business Association was created with the ultimate goal of ‘giving back’ to the business communities in the UK and Canada.

Having experienced firsthand the challenge of making professional and personal re-locations work, our directors recognized the need for a dynamic and well organized resource dedicated to providing businesses with the promotion, connection and support they need.

Today, the BCBA supports companies and individuals on both sides of the Atlantic, openly sharing our network and expertise with like-minded organizations to simplify the process and increase the chances of commercial and personal success.
