SMALL BUSINESS COUNCIL (SBC) – Vancouver Board of Trade

The Small Business Council is a working committee of the Vancouver Board of Trade with the mandate to ensure that the needs of members in small and medium-sized enterprises are both recognized and met. Our purpose in establishing our own Meetup Group is to encourage all small business owners and operators to attend upcoming events, not only as networking opportunities, but each reception will include guest speakers that will highlight topics of current interest

You do not have to be a member of the Board of Trade in order to join our group, or attend our events.

For more than 100 years, The Vancouver Board of Trade has helped businesses of all sizes to grow and prosper.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to work in the enlightened interest of our members to promote, enhance and facilitate the development of the region as a Pacific centre for trade, commerce and travel. The Board strives to enable and empower its members to succeed, grow and prosper in the global economy.

Basic Principles

The Board believes that the market system is the only system that works effectively in the allocation of scarce economic resources for efficient and stable economic growth and job creation. The Board recognizes the imperfections of the market system and supports the need for publicly provided services such as social services, health services and public education. The Board supports the philosophy of less government involvement in the business sector and believes that governments should not do what can be done in whole or in part by the private sector.

Membership in The Board of Trade offers an extensive number of resources and services and puts you in touch with a network of more than 5,800 business contacts. Plus... members are automatically members of World Trade Centre Vancouver.
