British Columbia Chapter of ICAI
The British Columbia Chapter of ICAI is a not for profit organization incorporated under the Society Act is established for the Alumni of ICAI with the primary objective of providing networking and professional development opportunities across British Columbia .
The Chapter believes strongly in facilitating the integration process of Indian migrants Chartered Accountants coming to Canada . Towards this, we will offer mentoring support, conduct focus workshops, organize social events and participate in sports activities to build a community of like minded professional accountants who will find it easier to settle down and contribute positively to the growth of the Canadian economy.
The growing importance of India as an investment destination with untapped market potential is increasingly attracting Canadian companies to explore trade and investment opportunities in India. Similarly, Indian companies are keen to explore opportunities in the resources in Canada . British Columbia has great potential for International Trade and Investment particularly in secondary and post secondary education partnership, natural gas , agrifood, clean technology, life science, film , digital art and finance . The Chapter intends to play an important role to help British Columbia and Indian businesses negotiate mutually beneficial partnerships
