Victoria – The Baking Association of Canada invites local bakers, chocolatiers, pizzaioli and others involved professionally in baking to a Bakers’ Town Hall Gathering in Victoria with plans to take the Town Halls Canada-wide in 2023.

Join the BAC for a gathering of local bakers, pastry chefs, chocolatiers, pizzaioli and bakery industry people!

The first meeting will take place on Monday, Jan. 30 from 3-5 p.m. in Victoria at Camosun College, Interurban Campus, Huber Hall, Building #15, Room 111 (Annex). View a map of the campus here.

The meeting will be informally structured with an opportunity for open discussion between attendees.


The informal agenda will include:

  • Introductions
  • Announcements
  • Panel discussion
  • Education
  • Regulatory
  • Hiring and training
  • Local event and next steps planning

This is an opportunity to network with local bakers and artisans as well meet other allied support people to discuss industry issues, challenges and successes.

The Baking Association of Canada is sponsoring these meetings, and we look forward to engaging with the grassroots of our wonderful baking and pastry community.

There is no charge for attending and refreshments will be provided.

The Baking Association of Canada invites pizzerias of all sizes – from large chains executives to franchisees to independent and artisan pizza makers. If you are involved in baking, you belong in the BAC.

Since pizzerias don’t have a dedicated association of their own, becoming a member is a great way to help this longtime association advocate on behalf of bakeries and pizzerias to all levels of government, including a push for easier access to temporary foreign workers. Membership is open to all Canadian bakers, large and small, who are currently conducting (or planning) business in the Canadian marketplace, as well as affiliate suppliers of goods and services and individual tradespeople.

Benefits include discounted access to the Bakery Showcase and Chapter events, expert assistance and latest resources support your business, access to training through American Baking Association and Bread Bakers Guild of America, savings with insurance and group RRSPs and other perks such as special payment processing rates and mobile plans.
