What is the Chamber of Commerce?
The chamber of commerce is a volunteer organization made up of business and professional people sharing a common goal: the economic development of the greater Charlottetown area. Small and large businesses from virtually every sector and profession form the membership.
What Does The Chamber of Commerce Do?
The chamber represents and promotes members of the organization. It organizes to identify community problems and issues affecting business and provides leadership to solve these problems. In this way, the chamber accomplishes collectively what no business can do alone.
Can I Send Information About My Business To The Chamber Membership?
Yes! We have several ways to get your message to our members: advertising in our publications, bi-weekly e-newsletters, and online business directory. Member news stories can be submitted electronically through the Chamber website.
