Celebrating the Role of Family Business in the Economy

June 7, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

FBA, your business family.

Celebrate another wonderful year and the significant contribution that family businesses make to the economy world-wide at our year-end social.

Did you know that:

  • In BC 80% of businesses are family-owned or operated.
  • Family enterprise forms the backbone of the Canadian economy, with families owning or controlling an estimated 80% of all businesses and representing the largest form of enterprise worldwide.
  • Current research demonstrates that, on average, family businesses last longer and outperform their non-family-run competitors and contribute upwards of 70-90% of global GDP.
  • As a vital driver of world economies, we all directly or indirectly depend on the success of family businesses.


We have lots to celebrate!

Your ticket buys you a drink, light snacks & great company! Come & stay or come & go – we value your presence.

Open to members and FBA friends. Registration opens two months before the event.

We are looking for an outdoor ‘homey’ venue for this event and will gratefully entertain offers!
