What is a Chamber of Commerce?
A Chamber of Commerce, also called a Board of Trade, is a not-for-profit voluntary organization. The organization is composed of progressive individuals and businesses. They work together to advance the commercial, financial and civic interests of a community.
The Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce is the 3rd largest in Alberta. We have over 1,100 members, who employ over 20,000 individuals. We serve our community and members in various ways, while focusing on connecting businesses & creating opportunity.
We are trusted partners on various committees within the Grande Prairie community. We also work with neighbouring chambers of commerce and local municipalities. Our goal is to connect our members with information and with one another.
The Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce acts as a unified voice for business of all sizes and interests. Our Chamber partners in the highly-respected advocacy and policy efforts of the Alberta and Canadian Chambers of Commerce to monitor pending legislation and regulation, and act on behalf of our Members to ensure the development and promotion of activities that ensure the Grande Prairie region's business community's growth and prosperity. The Chamber also offers our Members networking, promotional, and educational opportunities as well as optional value added benefits. Contact our office for more information.
Why do we need YOU? Because your voice counts!
