AdvantageBC is a supporting partner of The Business Council of British Columbia (BCBC), the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia’s head office initiative, HQ Vancouver. With a focused approach, this initiative will leverage Canada’s and British Columbia’s strategic location, high-quality infrastructure, sound government, and diverse and well-educated population to attract expanding medium-to-large sized Asian corporations to establish their North American head offices in the province.
AdvantageBC today announced it has launched its new website – www.advantagebc.ca – aimed to provide businesses engaged in international business to and from British Columbia with the right information tools to make competitive business decisions. The website has evolved from a primary focus on BC’s tax incentive, available through the International Business Activity (IBA) program, to a wider knowledge portal that explains BC’s many competitive advantages. The new website platform will allow AdvantageBC to share international business news on a real-time basis, and provide members with important business and financial updates.
