Why should I join a chamber of commerce?
The chamber exists for its members and works to add value to these member businesses by helping to strengthen the local economy, providing networking opportunities, promoting the community at large and effectively advocating on behalf of our member businesses.
We offer affordable rates for annual membership. All businesses in Oakville are eligible for membership. Membership rates are based on the number of employees in your organization.
