Burlington is our home. Business is our focus.
Since 1947, the Burlington Chamber of Commerce has been the voice of business in Burlington, giving companies valuable resources and connections to help them grow and succeed.
We act as an advocate for local business, by creating opportunities for members, encouraging Burlington businesses to work with one another and providing educational resources for company development. Our focus is on local entrepreneurs in the Burlington, Hamilton and Halton area and helping to make our city a preferred place to do business.
The Chamber currently consists of over 1,000 businesses in Burlington and the surrounding area. We represent companies on all levels (local, regional, provincial and national) and have alliances with other Chamber groups, Boards of Trade, and the Ontario and Canadian Chambers. If you want to make Burlington a better place to live and work – join us today.
Be a part of the community
Our members are what make the Burlington Chamber of Commerce so successful. Together, we can make Burlington and the surrounding area thrive. Being a part of the Burlington Chamber of Commerce offers you numerous membership benefits. If your company is a part of the Chamber, your employees are members too! Members and their employees are welcome to attend various events we hold, such as the Chamber Business After 5 and the Business Before 9. We also hold educational seminars based on our members’ needs and interests. Every event and seminar available is geared towards local companies learning new skills and valuable information.
In association with The Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Burlington Chamber of Commerce provides member discounts for businesses to run more efficiently. Members receive a discount on fuel at any Esso Brand service station in Canada, as well as preferential credit card and debit card transaction rates with our Merchant Program. If you own a small business, you can take advantage of group benefits programs that are typically only available to large companies.
We’re always working to support local business
The Burlington Chamber of Commerce helps small- and medium-sized companies grow and expand by giving them online access to organizations, products, services and key contact information. When local companies contact us, we only refer our Burlington Chamber of Commerce members.
Each year, we showcase the year’s top companies and members at the Business Awards Gala; the city’s premier business awards event. Contact us today to connect with thousands of Burlington business professionals!
Plans are already underway for 2016. Our bonspiel is a great way to beat the winter blues and network all at the same time. No curling experience is required since the club pro will give lessons before the game begins. We'll be holding the ever-popular trivia contest during lunch. You can enter the bonspiel as a team or as a single. This event sells out early every year so don't miss your chance this year. Book early. This year's bonspiel is being held at the beautiful Burlington Golf & Country Club. Prizes!
