It’s easier than ever to discover great Black-owned businesses in Canada thanks to a new national online directory and e-commerce marketplace.
The Black Business Association of BC (BBABC) launched Black Biz Global on February 1 to mark the start of Black History Month. The national directory of Black-owned businesses was created to support Canadian Black-owned businesses with their global commercial visibility.
“Everything we develop and build in the BBABC is based on current and future operational needs for our business community,” said Nerissa Allen, co-founder and president of the BBABC. “Where are the gaps, where are supports needed, and how can we address those needs with maximum impact? Currently, businesses need what I like to call ‘Virtual Commercial Real Estate’ and that is what we provide.”
