Taiwan Chamber of Commerce in B.C. (“TCCBC”) was established on March 29, 1992, as “Taiwan Entrepreneurs Investors Association In B.C.” and in 2001 changed to its current name. TCCBC was incorporated on September 25, 1992 under the Provincial Society Act in B.C. as a non-profit organization. The Taiwan Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs Association of B.C (TYPEABC) was founded during 2002 under full support of Taiwan Chamber of Commerce in B.C (TCCBC).
The mission of TCCBC is to consolidate the strength and experience of the Taiwanese business community in British Columbia, to bridge the gap between mainstream business groups, and to help enhance the position of Taiwanese-Canadian businesses. TCCBC will achieve this by promoting the exchange of business information and cooperation, facilitating global demand and supply of goods and services, and fostering the reputation of the Taiwanese business community.
The major activities of TCCBC include monthly business forums, happy hour gatherings, the mentorship program, networking events, and the annual gala banquet.
TCCBC is structured within the Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce in North America and the World Taiwanese Chamber of Commerce, which encompasses more than 52 countries and covers nearly 100 metropolitan areas. These organizations have a combined membership exceeding 30,000 businesspersons.
In August 2007, TCCBC and the Burnaby Board of Trade signed a memorandum of agreement to promote business and investment opportunities between the members of the two societies.
