About the Chamber

What does the Halifax Chamber do?

The Halifax Chamber of Commerce is a business advocacy organization committed to creating value and prosperity for its members. The Chamber provides the services its members need while advocating for the conditions to enhance private sector growth.

Together, the 1,900+ member businesses and their over 84,000 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.

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.

Did you know?

  • We are a non-partisan, not-for-profit, membership-based organization.
  • We are not a government agency. However, we do work closely with all levels of government to advocate for our members.
  • We do not receive funding from government. We are funded through revenue generated by membership, events, sponsorship, advertising, and other ancillary services.
  • We were founded by business, for business, to help make Halifax the best place to live, work, and play.

Most importantly, we are driven by the dedication and support of the business community around us. We know Halifax’s future is bright and want to see it succeed.

Our membership is 83% small business (25 employees or less) and we are proud to offer member benefits to over 84,000 employees in Halifax and beyond.

We’re in your corner.
