The BC Chamber of Commerce was established in 1951 by B.C.’s local Chambers and Boards of Trade, with a mandate to drive business advocacy on behalf of its B.C.-wide network.
Business advocacy remains our core focus to this day. We consistently engage with decision-makers across all B.C. ministries and federal departments to communicate our members’ views on policies and breaking issues.
In support of our advocacy, we facilitate a unique, grassroots policy-building process that draws on the innovative ideas and on-the-ground experience of our member Chambers, Boards and businesses in every region of the province.
In addition to our policy and advocacy work, we facilitate a range of programs and benefits to strengthen and grow B.C.’s network of Chambers and Boards of Trade, and their member businesses.
