BC Regional Innovation Chair on Canada-India Partnership Development
The BC Regional Innovation Chair on Canada-India Partnership Development helps businesses in the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland region take advantage of the opportunities offered by the large Indian market.
The Chair, housed within the South Asian Studies Institute at UFV, provides local businesses with the expertise and research necessary for them to access the fast-growing Indian economy and other overseas markets.
The Chair was established in 2007. The Province of British Columbia (Leading Edge Endowment Fund) provided a $1.25 million contribution which was matched by contributions from hundreds of supporters from the community to bring the total endowment to the Chair to $2.5 million.
