Credibility of the Winnipeg Chamber
Older than the City of Winnipeg itself, The Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce has been the local voice of business for over 144 years.
Association with The Winnipeg Chamber lets customers, suppliers and your business peers know you’re a committed member of our community. Members are allowed and encouraged to place our logo in online, printed and in store communications to let others know they mean legitimate business.
On their own, small and medium businesses can’t always afford the benefits that size and scale can purchase. The Winnipeg Chamber gives access to those programs so that any member – regardless of the number of employees – can afford the benefits they need to face the business day with confidence.
From employee benefits to merchant service discounts and low cost office supplies, find the specifics in our cost-saving section.
A Free Downtown Boardroom
Hold your next meeting in one of The Chamber’s executive boardrooms. Members have access to these rooms at no cost.
The Air Canada Conference Centre offers three executive boardrooms on the second floor of The Chamber office located in the Paris Building at 259 Portage Avenue:
- Secondary Boardroom (up to 12 people)
- Primary Boardroom (up to 16 people)
- Main Boardroom (up to 30 people) offers projector, screen & teleconferencing capabilities
All rooms have wireless internet access. For more details or to view the space, call (204) 944-8484.
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, both our office and boardroom remain closed to the public until further notice.
Discount Tickets to Invaluable Events
The Winnipeg Chamber is known for events. With over 140 functions a year – from a dozen members gathering to inform policy to 1000+ VIP receptions – we’re experts at bringing the Winnipeg business community together.
While many of our events are free and open to the public, some are member-only, giving our companies exclusive access. A number more are ticketed – and members always receive the best deal.
From season seats at our members luncheon series to tables at conferences to last-minute single seats at standalone events, members always receive a substantial discount (typically receive 50% off the public price).
Networking and Warm Introductions
Even in a city known for having only a few degrees of separation between citizens, it can be hard to know every business person, supplier and potential client for your industry. After all – you’re busy with your business.
The Chamber team’s business is meeting local leaders, institutions, vendors and professionals. As a hub for business discussions in Winnipeg, you can trust The Chamber to make meaningful, strategic introductions at your request.
Business Support Specialists
Our team meets with businesses of every sector and size each day, gathering feedback on their challenges, connecting them with resources and learning which “best practices” deliver results.
With all that experience, The Winnipeg Chamber’s staff are an invaluable resource at your disposal as you try to grow your organization, whatever your stage of the business life cycle.
