Association of Professional Economists of British Columbia

Who We Are

The Association of Professional Economists of British Columbia (APEBC) is an association of business economists.  Our members work for a diverse range of organizations that include government organizations, financial instututions, academic institutions, and in independent consulting firms.  APEBC is  British Columbia’s provincial chapter of the Canadian Association for Business Economists (CABE).

APEBC was founded in 1967 in Vancouver, and was incorporated on May 10, 1968 as a non-profit society.

The Economics and Finance Network was launched in the fall of 2001 to reflect a broadening of APEBC’s membership base to include other professionals with an interest in business economics, economic policy and finance.

APEBC regularly hosts luncheon meetings that feature knowledgable Speakers on a broad range of topics relating to economics.

APEBC has a large Vancouver-based chapter, an active Victoria committee, as well as members spanning other parts of the province.  APEBC maintains an administrative office in Vancouver and is governed by an annually elected Board of Directors.
