About Us

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 134 years, dating back to the Chamber’s founding as the Berlin Board of Trade, we have expanded into one of the largest and more innovative Chambers in Canada by focusing on the needs of all our members, big and small.

As we move into our 2021-2022 event and program year, our members can expect improved programs, enhanced events that routinely bring hundreds of fellow Chamber members together, all in order to serve you, our members, better.

We are 1700+ 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.
