The Fraser Valley Indo-Canadian Business Association or FVICBA for short is a non-for profit organization that was first established in Abbotsford, BC in 1987. The founding members included key business professionals in the Indo-Canadian community. As residents of the Fraser Valley, the members realized there was not a professional organization that brought together the expertise and differing business backgrounds of the indo-Canadian community. Thus, the members formed the FVICBA to collaborate and work on common goals and objectives. The organization has grown tremendously and has been successfully contributing financially, socially and politically to the larger community.
FVICBA was founded with a mission to connect community members and provide a platform for growth and success. Ultimately, our goal is to encourage and inspire our community to achieve more. By bringing together open-minded individuals with a common goal to improve the community around us, we can reduce cultural barriers and leave a lasting impact that benefits everyone.
Every year, FVICBA chooses 10 deserving recipients from the community to receive our Scholarships. We choose recipients based not only on grades but also extra-curricular activities and community involvement. Thanks to our generous donors we are able to honor these students year after year.
The Young Professionals’ Networking Events are a low-key, social way for the up and coming generation of business people to get to know one another, exchange ideas, and hopefully do business! Pioneered in 2015, they have been hugely successful and we look forward to many more events.
Our Annual Dinner and Dance is a chance for everyone to put on their dancing shoes and come out for a night filled with fun, food, music and of course dancing. Choosing a different deserving charity every year, our committee works hard to ensure that funds raised support the community and get everyone out for a great night!
