Welcome to the Black 
Entrepreneurs & Businesses 
of Canada Society

An organized, unified voice advocating for and supporting 
Black entrepreneurs and businesses in Western Canada.

Solidifying our seat at the table.

As a business hub, we support & serve our 800+ members in Western Canada by providing access to resources/support available for BEBs (Black Entrepreneurs and Businesses), ensuring every BEB has easy, quick, and clear access to what they need to keep their businesses sustainable.  Let us help you connect with one of our BEBs and leaders who will meet your needs, as you create community and expand networks.

Tell us about you,
so that we can serve you best.

BEBC has partnered with Vancity & Insights West to collectively advocate for black-owned businesses in Western Canada and provide opportunities for data-driven solutions. The partnership will involve collecting data to better understand the needs of Black entrepreneurs in the Western Canada ecosystem, to guide provincial and federal policy discussions and decisions, as well as determine the supports, funding, resources and more needed for our Black businesses to start, grow, expand and succeed. The government does not move or make any changes without data.

Participate in the survey to have your voice heard, your business counted and finally supported. Together we will make change happen.

To thank you for your time, all respondents will be entered into a draw to win one of three beautiful African bags; a Leather & Canvas gym/weekender bag worth $185 or one of two Sisal Basket Bags each worth $79 from Kasandy


Providing you with a community to grow.

BEBC will provide a home to build long-term, sustainable business partnerships and dealings to support Black-owned businesses in Western Canada and widely in Canada.

As one of us thrives, we all thrive. The BEBC is a community where all are welcome, no matter where you are on your entrepreneurial or business journey, with no barrier for costs. We are free, we are for all.
