A Chamber of Commerce is an organization of businesses seeking to further their collective interests, while advancing their community, region, province or nation. Business owners voluntarily form these local societies and networks to advocate on behalf of the community at large, economic prosperity and business interests.
The Comox Valley Chamber concentrates on:
Building communities to which residents, visitors and investors are attracted;
Promoting those communities;
Striving to ensure future prosperity via a pro-business climate;
Representing the unified voice of the employer community;
Collaborating with other organizations to establish rapport and well-functioning networks within the community.
Our Chamber is led by private-sector employers, is self-funded and is organized around a Board of Directors and committees of volunteers. All Chambers share a common ambition for sustained prosperity of their community/region, built on thriving employers. Chambers are proponents of the free market system. Chambers lobby Government to ensure private sector enterprises and investment is not overly burdened by red tape.
