About us

The Belgian Canadian Business Chamber (BCBC) is based in Toronto and works to foster contacts and relationships for our members who share an interest in developing business and trade opportunities between Canada and Belgium.

Our aim is to raise awareness of Belgium in the economic and media capital of Canada by organizing events that focus on business in the manufacturing, service and creative industries. The BCBC is not an ex-pat group or a cultural organization. Membership is open to anyone interested in developing or expanding their business relationship with Belgium.
