READY TO JOIN THE CHAMBER NETWORK?
WE’D LOVE TO HAVE YOU!
The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce is the province’s most influential business advocacy association. Together, with our local chambers of commerce, we invest in communities and contribute to a bright future for our province.
The chamber movement works collaboratively by bringing together a powerful network of businesses across virtually all sectors, as well as associations, industry organizations, and local chambers. The common thread is that we continue to step up to the greatest challenges in our communities and tackle barriers to growth.
If you’re already a member of your local chamber of commerce, you’re well-acquainted with the power of the network. If you’re seeking a strong provincial advocate, access to decision-makers, and an expanded network of connections, it may be the right time to level up your network investment and become a direct member of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce.
WATCH SACHIT’S STORY…
“I joined the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce during the height of the pandemic because I could see the difference the organization was making for businesses like mine. As a restaurant owner, I was gravely affected by operating restrictions, and I was looking for support for my industry.
The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce emerged as a guiding light during the pandemic, and truly listened to my concerns about the issues facing hospitality, such as the impact of lock-downs, wage inflation, supply chain challenges, and more. I am now a board member, and I am proud to be positioned alongside other community leaders who care about their roles as employers, contributors, and connectors, and want to have a real and lasting impact.”
– Sachit Mehra, Co-Owner & GM, East India Company
WATCH SCIMAR’S STORY…
“My dad, Dr. Wayne Lautt, dedicated his life’s work to the research of liver, and he realized that there’s actually a hormone that’s produced by the liver that’s responsible for Type 2 diabetes. If you’re missing this hormone, that he’s named hepatalin, you’ve got Type 2 diabetes. That’s a huge, groundbreaking discovery, and he felt that it’s his life’s responsibility to figure this out and share it with the world.
A couple of years after we founded the company, we joined the chamber. The Manitoba Chambers does a great job of getting people excited, and I feel that the team is really rooting for us. And they literally are…”

A COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY
In 2021, the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce surveyed our membership and the broader business community through third-party polling company, Leger, regarding our pandemic performance and perceived profile.
- 90% of respondents agreed that we “provide relevant and timely information to the business community”
- 87% agreed with the statement that we are the “Voice of Business in Manitoba”
EXCELLENCE IN ADVOCACY & CREDIBLE POLICY DEVELOPMENT
We develop grassroots policies to strengthen Manitoba’s business climate and competitive positioning, including recommendations on taxation, workforce, and economic development. We’ve advocated successfully to government on many measures to boost competitiveness, including Northern and rural economic development strategy, changes to personal and corporate taxes, and the lifting of retail restrictions. We’ve pushed for meaningful pandemic relief for SMEs, additional venture capital, increased tourism investments, and more.
ACCESS TO DECISION-MAKERS & NETWORKING AT GREAT EVENTS
Our high-profile membership is comprised of chamber managers, CEOs and other executive-level leaders, business owners, industry associations, and professionals from across all regions of the province.
The Manitoba Chambers’ value is in our ability to foster connections by designing opportunities to network meaningfully across sectors and by facilitating productive conversations when we see alignments.
INITIATIVES DRIVEN BY COMMUNITY SPIRIT
We are a catalyst for change and we spark collaboration. We believe that by working together and amplifying our messages through one voice, our network can accomplish so much.
We work in lockstep with chambers of commerce across Manitoba, leverage the work of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, and elevate the contributions of Manitoba’s business leaders, industry associations, and economic development agencies.
