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 over 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 member companies 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 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.
What We Do
We positively impact the policies and practices of municipal, regional, provincial, and federal governments on issues of importance to business.
Businesses need a favourable environment in order to compete and thrive. The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce helps to amplify the voice of business in policy debates, ensuring that public officials clearly understand the business perspective when making decisions. Our advocacy efforts are focused on:
- Expanding Business and Investor Confidence
- Expanding Trade and Access to Markets
- Expanding Regional and Northern Partnerships
We bring business and thought leaders together with opportunities to build their expertise and learn from one another.
Changing trends and shifts in leading practice mean that continuous learning is critical to continued success in business. Our programs bring members together with industry leaders, allowing opportunities to learn from one another and share expertise.
We provide opportunities to build connections that enable greater business success within our network of member businesses.
Through a variety of events like our business mixers, trade shows, and small business week, as well as our signature events—the Mayor’s State of the City Address, the Premier’s State of the Province Address, and the Chamber Ball—we provide opportunities for members to build connections within their industry and with others in the business community.
We support and enhance the Edmonton Metropolitan Region business community by advocating for conditions that ensure competitiveness, delivering exceptional educational experiences, and connecting people and businesses—all in a socially responsible manner. It’s what we do.
To be a trusted and reliable voice for business through partnership and innovation by building resiliency, promoting corporate social responsibility, encouraging inclusive growth, and providing valuable opportunities for our members.
Our activities under each of our strategic pillars are guided by the Chamber’s three goals. Everything we do must ensure we have:
We work to create a thriving environment for Edmonton businesses through advocacy to policymakers.
