2016 Membership Rates & Information

Chamber membership for a business is based on a “fair share” formula calculated according to the size of the business, as measured by the number of full-time (or FT equivalent) employees in the business or organization to hold membership. Once a business registers as a Member, all personnel (owners/managers/staff) within it have access to all Chamber programs, products and services. Individuals named as Representatives (see chart below) will be the primary contacts for information to/from the Chamber, and hold voting privileges on behalf of the Member. Memberships held by not-for-profits, charities, clubs, associations, etc., are offered at a discount as a means to encourage interaction with the local business community. These memberships have some restrictions and limitations regarding participation and access to Chamber programs, products and services. Please consult Chamber staff for details.

All new memberships are subject to a one-time initiation fee of $45.00 (plus HST $5.85).

** NOTE: All fees are subject to HST which, in most cases, is refundable as an input tax credit.
