About the Chamber

Who we are

We exist to provide opportunities for business.

What does the Halifax Chamber do?

We create value and prosperity for our members by providing the services they need and advocating for conditions to enhance their prosperity. It’s a job we’ve been proud to do for over 250 years.

The Halifax Chamber and its members have built a city we’re proud to call home and are now leveraging the ocean opportunities surrounding us. It’s an exciting time to be doing business in Halifax.

Today, we create value for members and advocate about important issues on their behalf. To do this, we’ve tailored programs, expanded our Member to Member Marketplace and created connections. We also help our members grow through programs, new strategies and help expand their influence with policymakers.
