Welcome to AdvantageBC

AdvantageBC International Business Centre (formerly the International Financial Centre British Columbia (IFC BC)) is a non-profit society with a mandate to promote international business in British Columbia.

Vancouver is rapidly climbing the ranks of the world’s financial centres – from 33rd on the Global Financial Centre Index in 2008 to the 17th in 2017.

With investment into our ports, airports, rail and road systems, Vancouver is state-of-the-art in the movement of goods through North America – one of the province’s key competitive advantages.

British Columbia’s location on the west coast of North America and Pacific Standard Time (PST) zone advantage makes it possible to do business with Asia, Europe, and North America in the same business day.
