Our Vision

The British Columbia Chamber of Commerce – A Bold Voice for All Businesses in British Columbia.

Uniquely positioned with a membership represented by small, medium and large companies from every industry, we understand what’s important to businesses across the province and advocate passionately on their behalf.


Our Purpose

We champion the collective voice of our members to create an environment in which B.C. businesses prosper, families thrive and communities flourish.

We advocate for a business environment that is inclusive, innovative and competitive, believing that if businesses succeed, they can help support families and grow communities in a sustainable way.


How We Do Business

Our values inform our words and actions.

We are courageous leaders – we are strategically focused and intentional in all that we do.

To sustain an environment in which businesses thrive requires extraordinary ideas and creative solutions. Count on us to think strategically, challenge the status quo, and bring bold, innovative thinking to every conversation.

We care – we support our members and communities.

At the heart of every organization there are leaders who not only work tirelessly on their business but who care deeply about their people. We care too, and not only support our members’ business success but also their health and wellbeing and that of their communities.

We welcome all to the table – we embrace equity, diversity and inclusivity.

We really are stronger together than apart. And whether we are leading a cause or supporting that of another, collaboration is key. That’s why, with open ears and open minds we welcome all to the table so that we can listen, learn and co-create together.

We listen – we seek first to understand and are responsive.

We actively listen in order to understand before responding thoughtfully and taking action, because we recognize that our members, businesses and stakeholders come from across a province that is geographically large and socially, culturally and economically diverse.
