Welcome to the Canada Arab Business Council

The CABC is Canada’s only not-for-profit association focussed exclusively on bringing the Canadian and Arab business communities together. We advise governments in Canada and Arab countries on policies to facilitate and expand two-way trade and investment. We further support our members by organising missions to the Arab region, receiving incoming delegations, and hosting conferences to provide information about the latest business opportunities and insights into relevant politicaleconomic developments in Arab countries.

In the past 12 months the Council has:

  • Added 32 new members, including our first 6 Arab companies;
  • Signed partnership agreements with Canadian Business Councils in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and in Algeria;
  • Hosted 3 major conferences in Canada including the first Canada Arab investment conference in Toronto and our annual Businesss Forum in Ottawa;
  • Led 3 missions to the region focused on SMEs, oil & gas, healthcare;
  • Held 3 seminars in Toronto and Calgary dealing with renewable energy in Saudi Arabia, business conditions in UAE, and how to do business in Arab countries;
  • Negotiated preferential rates for members with several airlines and hotels;
  • Surveyed members and other companies active in the region to identify obstacles, frame recommendations for governments and shape CABC member services.
