AboutUsHeader

The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce is one of the longest-running and most influential business organizations in Canada. We’re part of a robust business community that extends regionally, provincially, nationally, and around the globe within the Chamber and World Trade Centre Networks.

For 130 years, we’ve contributed to ambitious, foundational projects that have helped build Edmonton into the city it is today. Our track record of success has made us the sought‐after voice of business in Edmonton.

Our 2,000 members, who employ more than 100,000 people, represent small, medium and large businesses, and every sector of the economy… from heavy industry and manufacturing to retail and non‐profit organizations.

We are proud of our work and our members. We are unwavering in our commitment to using our powerful voice to champion Edmonton and the entire region as a great place to live, work, and do business.

The Chamber

The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce believes that a healthy, stable, and predictable business ecosystem in any community is good for business owners and good for all. As the economy thrives and wealth creation takes place, entrepreneurs who take business innovation risks, corporations who act as cornerstones of the business community, and small and medium‐sized providers of goods and services, contribute to community development in large and small ways. It is often successful businesses that become a community’s most generous volunteers, philanthropists and advocates for social innovation.

As a Chamber, we’re unapologetically interested in business success, so that thriving business organizations can do their part to enhance our collective quality of life. They do this through the support of sport, arts, culture and a range of recreational pursuits, as well as playing a role in resolving some of our most pressing social concerns such as poverty, homelessness, discrimination, and exclusion.

In order to safeguard the behaviours we value, we are committed to stakeholder engagement that is:

  • Informed
  • Respectful
  • Principled
  • Collaborative
  • Professional
