It was created to generate commerce for Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs to create economic development within our proud Black communities across Canada. The Organization was created and incorporated in 2018.

ORGANIZATION LAUNCH

On April 25th, 2019, the organization held its’ historic launch in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Serving to function as the hub of the Canadian Black business eco-system, the CBCC provides Canadian Black Businesses with a voice on (Parliament) Hill and accelerates the contribution of Black Canadian businesses in critical sectors.

The Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce is an established Chamber of Commerce in Canada that seeks to collectively service the approximate one million Black Canadians whom originate from many rich and diverse Black Global regions of the world such as the motherland of Africa, The Caribbean, The Americas, various regions of Europe, Asia and Australasia.

NEW PROGRAM LAUNCH

Through the tireless work of the CBCC, we will inspire the next great minds and innovators who will emerge from the Black Canadian Community to foster greater economic prosperity for the Black Diaspora and for all Canadians. In 2022 The CBCC launched the Elevate Black Business program.  Our Business Advisors serve to elevate entrepreneurs through programming, mentorship, advocacy, promotion, and investment in their training and development. The Black entrepreneurial community has long been disenfranchised by the effects of systemic racism. The Canadian Black Chamber of Commerce endeavours through this program and funded by the Government of Canada to “level the playing field” and provide Start-up and established Black entrepreneurs with the supports needed to help their businesses succeed.
