Advocacy
As the largest North Vancouver business association, collectively we have a strong voice. The Chamber represents our members at the local, provincial, and federal government levels working with the BC and Canadian Chamber network. We ensure our members have current information on changes in government policy, regulations and rules that affect business.

The Chamber’s Policy Committee identifies specific issues affecting our members and researches and develops policy recommendations.  Each year, the Chamber attends the annual conferences of the BC and Canadian Chambers of Commerce to present our policy recommendations to government for approval by the provincial or federal Chamber caucuses.

The Chamber also works with key stakeholders including big and small business, local government and community groups to initiate programs and coordinate efforts to improve the economic well-being of the whole community.  We understand that a health community requires a healthy economy and that the small business community is the backbone of a thriving, healthy neighbourhood.
