CHAMBER NETWORK

When you join your local chamber of commerce or board of trade, you become part of an influential network of 65 chambers of commerce and almost 10,000 businesses, from all corners of the province.

Click on the blue pins on the map below to see all the communities in which we’re represented, and where you belong!

Membership in a local chamber gives your business a competitive edge by allowing you to develop new professional relationships, access information and tools to help grow your business, and ensures your views are heard by government.

We’re fortunate in Manitoba to have numerous chamber of commerce groups actively working to benefit our business community. Manitoba’s chamber movement works together by bringing together a powerful network that no other organization can match. We are the most diverse, bipartisan business association in the province.

Although the MCC focuses on provincial issues, and our local chambers tend to focus on local issues, one common thread is that we continue to step up to the greatest challenges in our communities, tackling barriers to business growth. We work to enhance economic competitiveness; address taxation and the fiscal framework, red tape, skills and workforce issues; promote international trade, transportation and infrastructure, and advocate for expanded broadband access.

The MCC actively advocates for good public policy on a provincial & national level with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, while the local chambers each provide benefits at a more localized level.

Like the old saying – if you’ve seen one local chamber, you’ve seen one chamber. Each group works hard to provide value to their members in different ways, but we share a common belief that a strong business community is necessary to our continued success. We recognize that quality of life in Manitoba is driven by our businesses, and that healthy, thriving communities and vibrant businesses work as an ecosystem.
