What Does A Chamber of Commerce Do
The Chamber of Commerce enables businesses and people to accomplish collectively what could not be done individually, creating a pool of resources from which one can draw ideas, energy, and new business opportunities.
A large portion of the Chamber of Commerce’s efforts are focused on advocacy. Both at the local and at the provincial and Federal level, Chambers of Commerce provide the opportunity for businesses to have their voice heard on key policy issues.
The Chamber of Commerce provides a powerful voice on behalf of the business community by speaking out on issues such as taxes, transportation, infrastructure and education to name a few.
Your financial support of a local Chamber of Commerce ensures a resource of information and services for the business region that it serves.
