WHAT WE DO
Successfully navigating the business climate in the Canada-India space requires insight and practical guidance – even for those well-versed and established in the market. The C-IBC exists to ease the journey. Working with businesses from sole proprietorships to global conglomerates, industry professionals, and various levels of government involved in bilateral initiatives, we offer unique, actionable insights, and support to navigate within the Canada-India corridor.
Our topical roundtables, seminars, and annual forums take place across Canada and India, and encourage necessary conversations, give practical guidance and networking opportunities, and access to key contacts.
