The Korean Canadian Business Association (“KCBA”) is a not-for-profit organization representing Korean Canadian business owners in the Greater Toronto Area. Since 2001, the KCBA has had a prominent role in spreading awareness of Korean culture mainly through the increasingly popular Korean Harvest Festival (Hangawi, 한가위). Each year the event is held at Mel Lastman Square in North York and continues to draw large crowds from the surrounding community. In 2016, attendance was estimated to be over 35,000 throughout the 3-day spectacle of live performances, market stalls and our delicious and beer food garden run by local Korean-owned businesses and our members.
Our team consists of Executive Members and Directors who are actively involved in various business activities in G.T.A. areas and the Korean community at large.
- To create an alliance amongst the increasing population of Korean Canadian business owners and community
- To help the integration of its members within Canadian culture and society
- To promote diversity and connect our community with other ethnic groups
KCBA represents Korean-Canadians at home and abroad
In December 2016, the President of KCBA John Jung Uk Ko was invited by the Premier of Ontario, the Hon. Kathleen Wynne, to be a delegate for the Ontario Business Mission to Japan and Korea. For more information about the mission, please visit here.
