Welcome to the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce online community!

Your Chamber is dedicated to providing strong, continued service to 1,700+ members in one of Canada’s marquee pioneering and entrepreneurial business communities. For the past 128 years, dating back to the Chamber’s founding as the Berlin Board of Trade, we have expanded into one of the largest and innovative Chambers in Canada by focusing on the needs of all our members, big and small.

In everything we do our focus is on four core pillars that you have told us are important to you. Those four pillars are:


Networking – with events like Business After 5 and the Networking Breakfast Series

Education – programs like the Manulife Chamber Academy, Chamber eLearning Centre and the Chamber Toastmasters

Member Rewards – rewards like Cowan One Source Advantage, Zomaron Merchant Services and Esso Business Discount Program

Advocacy – working issues like Physician Recruitment and Federal & Provincial Government Advocacy

We are 1,700+ members strong and we add more every week. There is strength in numbers and as one of the largest chambers of commerce in Canada, we have a stronger voice to make Waterloo Region’s issues heard at the highest level. A strong business community means a strong overall community. We work together to build a stable, flourishing economy and to continue Waterloo Region’s success at Business Building Community. Your Chamber will be there to help you grow and succeed.

I appreciate you visiting the Chamber website and your interest in learning more about Waterloo Region’s business community.
