MAPLE Business Council® promotes bilateral investment, trade and entrepreneurship opportunities between Canada and the U.S. focused on key regions.

Southern California Chapter

We launched our first chapter in Southern California promoting opportunities between Canada and the Southern California region. In just over three years, MAPLE has established itself as the leading business voice for Canada in SoCal. The chapter has hosted over 50 networking receptions and visited Canada 7 times to bring delegations from Southern California to Vancouver and Toronto and to host 6 networking receptions focused on the Southern California market.

Our Southern California chapter celebrates business ties between Canada and the region through our social media channels - Twitter (@maplesocal), Facebook (, and Instagram (@maplesocal).

Future MAPLE Chapters

In the future, we look forward to connecting Canada and other regions of the U.S. together in the same way - through networking receptions, thought-leadership events, delegations to and receptions in major Canadian markets and through content curation. Executives interested in participating in MAPLE chapters in their region are encouraged to contact Stephen Armstrong and Robert Kelle.
