Join the Chamber of Commerce board of directors.

Chemainus District Chamber of Commerce supports business relationships

Strong tradition within local communities continues

It’s Chamber Week Feb. 17-21 and another reminder about the vital role the Chemainus & District Chamber of Commerce plays in the community.

The Chemainus & District Chamber of Commerce has been a leading voice and advocate in supporting the business communities of Chemainus, Crofton, Saltair and Thetis Island since 1949. The Chamber strives to establish strong networks and relationships, foster business opportunities and engage community members with one motto in mind, “together we can do more.”

People can sign up for the weekly Chamber Voice Newsletter by contacting executive director Lori Frankson by email at

The annual general meeting takes place Tuesday, March 17 at the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome and it’s free of charge.

The Chamber also hosts monthly networking breakfast meetings the last Wednesday of each month from 8-9 a.m. at the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn. The next one is Feb. 26. Tickets are $20, with breakfast included, and only 20 are available.

Chamber members are also encouraged to join the board of directors. This is Frankson’s top priority at the moment.

To help become a leading voice for innovation and empowerment in the local business community, call 250-246-3944.

Emily Weeks is the Chemainus Visitor Centre Manager and has been doing an excellent job since putting her extensive training to use in that capacity.

There are 135 Chambers of Commerce across the province, supporting the success of local business and boosting economic development opportunities within their respective communities.
