As Halifax's oldest business advocacy organization, the Chamber acts as the voice of business for our over 1,500 members and their 90,000 employees. All of the Chamber's work – from regional planning, to air transportation, to taxation issues – is done at the request of our members, through the work of our Committees, and ties back to our priority areas.
In May 2011, the Board of Directors approved the following five new priority areas:
- Helping small business take advantage of our economic strategies; and
- Making Halifax more competitive
Working under both of these priority areas we will be better able to focus on initiatives that will directly help member businesses grow, move into new markets, and attract and retain talent - all helping create a city that is vibrant, competitive. and open for business.
Chamber Policy Information
The Chamber does not receive any government funding, making it the only truly independent business advocacy organization in Halifax. This absence of government funding allows the Chamber to advocate solely on the behalf of our members, without being subject to outside influence or opinion.
