The Czech Business Association of Canada is a not-for-profit organization that serves as platform for Czech and Slovak community in Calgary. It promotes Czech business and culture by organizing regular networking meetings with business presentations as well as cultural events.
The Czech Business Association of Canada was officially established in 1999. The organization has its roots as the Alberta Chapter of Canadian Czech Republic Chamber of Commerce (CCRCC). The Alberta Chapter of CCRCC was created in 1995 with the purpose of becoming a communication portal between individuals and companies doing business or interested in doing business between the Czech Republic and Canada. In 1999, the Alberta Chapter of CCRCC voted to sever its association with CCRCC Toronto and set up a new entity. This new entity was called Czech Business Association of Western Canada, which was a not-for-profit Association created for the purpose of promoting Canada-Czech Republic business ties in Western Canada.
In 2004, Czech Business Association of Western Canada changed its name to Czech Business Association of Canada to properly reflect the current organization which includes a Canada wide membership roster and business activities.
