The Niagara Chamber Partnership (Fort Erie, Grimsby, Lincoln, West Lincoln, Niagara Falls, Niagara-On-The –Lake, Port Colborne-Wainfleet, Welland/Pelham and West Lincoln) represent in excess of 2,500 members, and have consistently carried out this long-standing role for as many as 125 years. These chartered Chambers represent specific geographic areas and each works towards the well-being of their respective business communities, all the while supporting each other for the broader good.
The individual Chambers truly understand the specific needs of the local business communities. By continuing to work together, and with other partners from a variety of sectors, they have a greater sense of the needs across the region.
Senior staff and Board Members have extensive expertise and contacts in a range of industries including business, education, labour and political. Collectively, they have assisted hundreds of entrepreneurs in building businesses and managing growth. The Chambers have provided guidance and support to young entrepreneurs, displaced workers setting up businesses and seasoned professionals. This combined network across the region provides the Niagara Chambers of Commerce with the best intelligence about what businesses need in order develop, thrive and succeed.
These community minded Chambers of Commerce are now able to provide members with a truly regional experience. It’s affordable, it’s easy and it provides you with the opportunity to take advantage of membership benefits across Niagara. It’s our Associate Membership
In a nutshell, once you have joined your local or ‘home’ Chamber, you are eligible to become a member of any other participating Chamber for only $75 per Chamber. Your ‘home’ Chamber is the Chamber that represents the area that your business is located. Unfortunately, if you have multiple storefronts in various locations, you are not eligible for an Associate Membership. Obtaining an Associate Membership is easy: when you are filling out your membership application to your home Chamber, you simply check off Chambers you would like Associate Memberships with from a list. You will then make one payment to your home Chamber, and that will cover all of your memberships. We take care of the rest, ensuring your fees are distributed and application is processed in all Chambers that you have joined. You are entered into the respective databases, websites and directories. You are also invited to all events and provided with marketing and networking opportunities. You, the member can then pick and choose the things you (or your staff) want to participate in. The result is more exposure, more connections, and a better understanding of business across Niagara!
Participating Chambers include Fort Erie, Grimsby, Lincoln, Niagara Falls, Port Colborne-Wainfleet, Welland/Pelham, and West Lincoln. (Niagara-On-The-Lake participates at a rate of $125)
