About Us

The Canadian Business Council endeavours to foster communication and networking between Canadian and other business people in Dubai and other emirates, and to build awareness amongst the regions' business community of the contribution that Canadians and Canadian goods, services and technologies have made in the development of the UAE.  

The Council provides an excellent forum for assisting its members to increase their visibility and to develop more effective business relationships within the community. The Council reaches these goals by organizing informative monthly events in Dubai, maintaining a website, and by the publication and distribution within Dubai, the U.A.E. and elsewhere, of an annual Membership Directory. Membership is open to individuals and companies who are Canadian, or do business with Canada, or who have demonstrated an affinity towards Canada.

The Canadian Business Council of Dubai and the Northern Emirates (CBC) was established on March 31, 1993 as a non-profit organization. 

The objectives of the CBC are:
  • To provide a forum for members in the UAE to meet regularly and exchange information

  • To provide a bridge between Canadian companies and organizations dedicated to the development of trade between Canada and the Middle East

  • To continue to build on the excellent relationship Canada enjoys with the UAE

  • To assist Canadian companies and business people considering doing business in the UAE

  • To increase our member's network by interacting with other business council and with the national business community in the UAE.  Join CBC Dubai on Facebook and LinkedIn!

There is also an existing Memorandum of Understanding with our sister organization in Abu Dhabi, allowing members of either council to join Abu Dhabi or Dubai CBC events at the member rates:
