Advocacy

The BC Chamber of Commerce's dynamic, grassroots policy-building process is key to our success as B.C.'s premier business advocate.

Our network of local Chambers and their member businesses works tirelessly to craft forward-thinking, innovative policies that respond to the current, on-the-ground needs of B.C.'s businesses.

When these policies are voted into force at the BC Chamber's annual AGM, they carry the backing of our more than 30,000 represented businesses. These businesses span from sole proprietorships and micro-businesses to B.C.'s largest corporate players. Our network captures the views of every region and sector in the province.

The BC Chamber's rigorous policy-building process, coupled with our strategic advocacy efforts, has driven our outstanding track record of policy results.

The BC Chamber works closely with our partner, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, to ensure that made-in-B.C. policies have national impact. We annually participate in the Canadian Chamber's policy process and bring B.C.'s needs and innovative solutions before our peers from across the country.
