BC Career Colleges Association

The BC Career Colleges Association (BCCCA) was formed in 1977 to support post-secondary schools, stakeholders, students and parties involved in private post-secondary education and training in British Columbia. The goal is to ensure that the private education and training industry is recognized for the high level of service delivery, commitment to quality, and student satisfaction that the sector delivers to consumers.

BCCCA member schools adhere to a Code of Ethics and are committed to providing students with individual care and attention throughout their studies, and as they graduate and search for employment. We expect to promote consistency, accountability and excellence in the private post-secondary education and training industry.

This is accomplished by co-ordinating and disseminating information on topics relevant to members – through seminars and meetings as well as out annual conference. The association is also a communications and advocacy liaison between the private training industry and the provincial government, the media and the general public.


India Canada Friendship Circle (ICFC)

Established in 2004, India Canada Friendship Circle (ICFC) is a registered, non-profit Canadian organization comprising individual and corporate members and supporters. It is a non-religious, non-political entity, and its language of operation is English.

ICFC encourages dialogue on India in a harmonious environment. The words “friendship” and “circle” in its name, convey an explicit desire to forge and maintain close ties among Canadians with an interest in India.

The primary objective of ICFC is to enhance the profile of India in Canada. The support of the High Commission of India and participation of the Canadian community in ICFC’s activities are invaluable assets to work towards its objective.
