Oakville Chamber of Commerce

The Oakville Chamber of Commerce is an incorporated not-for-profit association of member businesses. The organization has represented the interests of the local business community since it was founded in 1949. In 2013, the Oakville Chamber obtained the Certificate for Accreditation with Distinction – an honour received by only 7% of all Canadian chambers. Advocacy continues to be a significant part of the chamber’s value to its member businesses. As a politically non-partisan organization, the chamber maintains a collaborative relationship with elected officials from all levels of government. This facilitates productive conversations about the issues most pertinent to business.

Members of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce enjoy many benefits, including merchant discountsnetworking events, partnership and advertising opportunities, and educational forums. Being a member of the local chamber enhances a company’s community profile.

The Oakville Chamber is part of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, which provides local chambers and their members with practical supports, network opportunities and access to innovative insight and analysis. This collective network represents 60,000 members employing two million people and producing nearly 17% of Ontario’s GDP. The Ontario Chamber supports the advocacy efforts of the Oakville Chamber by advocating for pro-business policies and defending business priorities at Queen’s Park.

For #GivingTuesdayCA we have partnered with charitable organizations in Oakville to lead the #OakvilleGives movement, encouraging both the business community and Oakville residents to give back.
