A strong business community begins with a strong local chamber of commerce
Our mission is:
“To be the voice of business that promotes economic growth and prosperity in our community."
Our Vision is:
"A successful business environment for our members."
For over 150 years, the Chamber of Commerce Brantford-Brant has served the business community. Our accomplishments in the fields of government relations, education and community involvement have contributed to the evolution and growth of our community. Some of our most respected citizens have led the Chamber. Names such as Cockshutt and Waterous, synonymous with our community’s history, are woven through the the history of the Chamber. Our success today is due to the vision and dedication of the men and women who have led the way. These community leaders knew that the business community has a unique role in building our community.
We are an independent, membership driven organization. Your support allows us to help develop your business and our community. Policy and direction are determined through a volunteer Board of Directors; issues are taken to volunteer committees for discussion and they determine the course of action we take on your behalf.
As the voice of business in our community, the Chamber:
>> Plays an important advocacy role by working with all three levels of government on issues related from taxation to transportation.
>> Offers a broad range of programs and services that provide networking, marketing and educational opportunities for our members. We can help improve the bottom line of your business.
>> Speaks out on issues of local importance such as education, health care and the needs of our labour market.
