About the Russia-Canada Business Council

The Russia-Canada Business Council was established in December 2004 as a joint venture between CERBA and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP) on the basis of a proposal agreed between then-Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin and Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Over its 17 years of existence, the CRBC has become a crucial vehicle for promotion and support of bilateral cooperation between Russia and Canada.
