The National Black Business Professional Convention (NBBPC) is one of the most impactful and significant Afro-Canadian business conventions in our nation. This year’s convention will focus on the secondary school age students in our community, mentoring these young minds by engaging them with some of our best professionals and entrepreneurs in the city. The BBPA will utilize multi-disciplinary professionals, businesses and organizations to cohesively stimulate and inject an appetite for economic excellence.

Our conference has always been well-attended by our next generation of leaders, who come from far and near to be inspired and network with our country’s top business, education and political visionaries. The depth of the workshops, discussions and presentations, complimented by the opportunities to network will ensure this will be yet another rewarding experience for students, entrepreneurs and businesses across the GTA.

The NBBPC’s main objective is to provide education, job, entrepreneurial and networking opportunities for students/Individuals, businesses and associations across the Nation, especially within the Black community.
