We are the voice of business in the community.
The staff and volunteer board of the Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce work to promote a healthy and vibrant economy while protecting and advancing the interests of our members and the community.
The Chamber works cooperatively with citizens, businesses, educational and government partners to foster a positive business environment and improve the quality of life in Nelson and area. Our goal is to promote growth, and healthy economic development, and to work as our members’ number one “business booster” through our advocacy efforts and economic development initiatives.
We have valuable partners in this regard: Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism Association, City of Nelson Downtown Waterfront Masterplan working groups, Regional Economic Dialogue with our neighboring communities, Community Futures and Imagine Kootenay
And here’s a powerful reality. The Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce, through its strong membership, is an equal partner with all other chambers within the BC Chamber of Commerce. Issues, concerns, and initiatives identified in Nelson have every opportunity to help shape policy at a provincial and even national level through the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
