What We Do

The BC Chamber of Commerce (The Chamber) is registered under the Societies Act (British Columbia) as a volunteer, not-for-profit association and serves its members as the provincial federation of autonomous community chambers of commerce, boards of trade and corporate members.

Known to have been in operation as early as March 1867, the Chamber was re-established in 1951 to promote and improve trade, commerce and the economic and social welfare of the people of British Columbia, and to develop and present a true cross-section of opinions of the BC business community to the provincial government and, in some areas of national importance, to the federal government.


The BC Chamber of Commerce is the premier business advocacy organization in the province.

Through a unique policy development process grounded in a grassroots, result orientated analysis of issues and solutions from locally based stakeholders, the BC Chamber is widely accepted as the only organization capable of providing real solutions to real problems.


The BC Chamber runs a number of programs to support our members in their work. From small businesses, to local Chambers of Commerce, we can help you to develop your operations and provide you with new opportunities.


The BC Chamber of Commerce has many partnerships and benefit providers through which it is able to pass benefits on to its members. Visit our Partners & Benefit Providers page for more information.
