What is a Chamber of Commerce?

A Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit membership-based organization supporting local business leaders within their catchment area. It is overseen by a Board of Directors elected once per year by the chamber membership, with day-to-day operations completed by a strong team overseen by the C.E.O.

How can the Chamber of Commerce help my business?

Network. Connect. Support. Through a variety of initiatives, the chamber offers local business leaders exposure to new clients, member-only discounts and casual, fun networking opportunities. The chamber advocates to local, provincial and federal government on behalf of its members and gives businesses a united voice to stand together on local issues.

Who funds the Chamber of Commerce?

The chamber is member-based, meaning no funding is ever received from any level of government. The funding comes directly from members through annual membership fees, event registrations, advertisements and sponsorship. As a non-profit, the chamber relies on the generosity of its members to succeed and thrive as a voice for local business.
