The purpose of the Calgary Chamber is to build a business community that nourishes, powers and inspires the world. We live into that purpose by fostering an inclusive and holistic business community—one that doesn’t separate itself into different sectors by industry. 

Being a Chamber member gives you a badge of ownership and a vibrant business community to belong to. We provide a Podium of Record, where we are the strong voice having critical conversations with policymakers about economic issues. We provide programs and expertise that will help you nourish, power and inspire your business growth. As a Chamber, we are three years older than Calgary—our foundation was built on a promoting a railroad for Calgary and we have never stopped advocating for a stronger Calgary business community.

Let’s talk about the Chamber itself

The Calgary Chamber is a member-based association that receives no annual funding from any level of government.

We are funded through revenue generated by membership, events and sponsorship, advertising and other ancillary services to the business community.

 

Advocacy and policy work

As a member-driven organization, we frequently survey our members to determine their priorities on key business issues, as well as to gauge their satisfaction with the programs and services they have access to.

The priorities of Chamber members are recognized by most policy makers as the official agenda of the business community, and are used to help guide the work of our Policy team.

The Calgary Chamber is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization that has acted as the primary connector between government and the local business community since our founding more than 128 years ago.

As a non-partisan organization representing a diverse group of businesses, the Chamber is recognized for its long-standing record of credibility. When we advocate for change on key issues to improve the business environment, government listens and more often than any other pro-business organization in the city, we get results.

Joining your trade association is one of the smartest decisions you will ever make. They are your strongest advocate and representation on the that impact only your industry.

But in addition to industry-specific issues, you need an organization that can act as a strong advocate on your business’ behalf so that policymakers are aware of your concerns on issues that impact more than just your industry—like taxation, labour code, climate leadership, municipal direction, and more. That’s where we come in.

We strongly recommend supporting both your trade association and the Calgary Chamber.
