The Edmonton Chamber is the official voice of business in the Capital Region. With nearly 3,000 business and corporate members we are the largest chamber, and among the most influential business organizations, in the country.
We are a not-for-profit organization that derives its funding from the support of our members, as well as a variety of initiatives operated by the chamber.
On Feb. 27, 1889, 33 of Edmonton’s most visionary pioneers signed the “certificate of formation” that officially launched the first ever Edmonton Chamber of Commerce – known until 1928 as the Edmonton Board of Trade. The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce is an institution in the city and is proud to have contributed to in the many accomplishments of our community since its inception.
WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to create the best environment for business.
Strategically, we lobby on behalf of business, create value for our members, and influence public opinion in a positive way on behalf of the business community.
Our membership speaks clearly and collectively regarding regulatory, revenue, and taxation policies affecting business. Each new member that joins our organization strengthens the quality and expands the audience of the message.
OUR STRATEGIC PRIORITIES
Each year, our board of directors determines our organization’s direction through a number of strategic priorities. These maxims serve to guide the chamber in its operations throughout the year.
