The Indo-Pacific Foundation of Canada was born in January 2024 as a not-for-profit society with a strategic commitment to nurturing trade and dialogue among diaspora communities from Indo-Pacific countries living in Canada. Their objective is to help businesses from these communities to collaborate more and thrive together. The focus of their work is on immigrant entrepreneurs and small businesses seeking opportunities in BC and Canada, as well as those looking to expand and export their ideas/products to Indo-Pacific countries. Their membership is supported by representatives from established local institutions such as BDC, CIBC, BMO, and Pacific Link College. The Board Members of this society are dedicated to support businesses and carefully formed committees are focused on areas such as housing, banking, settlement and health. They aim to create a framework of support for small businesses to acquire professional training, educational seminars, legal assistance and other professional support services. They are planning to offer a wide variety of programs.

On June 23 rd this year the Foundation will celebrate International Day of Yoga with mindfulness workshops and thought-provoking discussions at the Bear Creek Park from 7 am to 10 am. “This is the first initiative towards a Fitter Canada” says Bhhaskar. The Foundation will raise funds for charity.
