About Us

The Halifax Chamber of Commerce is a best-practice, business advocacy organization that continuously strives to make Halifax an even more attractive city in which to live, work and play.

Together, the approximately 1,600 member businesses and their over 65,000 employees, act as a single powerful voice through the Chamber to promote local business interests. The volunteer board of directors and chamber staff undertake initiatives by request of, and on behalf of our diverse membership.

We are recognized as the first Chamber established in North America and are certified to the ISO 9001:2015 international quality standard, the first Chamber in North America to receive this accreditation.
