The Kelowna Chamber is an Accredited Chamber of Commerce with Distinction. We choose to apply for this designation, and it means that we operate our enterprising non-profit in a strategic and professional way that reflects national standards of business excellence. At the centre of our work is helping to ensure the Okanagan region will become the most economically prosperous area, and the most desirable place to live and work in Canada.

Membership with the Kelowna Chamber provides access to a well-grounded organization and quality business professionals who are focused on the growth and development of our business community.

Originally founded in 1906, The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce is one of the oldest business organizations in the region. The Chamber has been an integral part of Kelowna, one of Canada's fastest growing cities, for nearly as long as the city itself has existed. From large corporations to small and mid-sized businesses and emerging entrepreneurs, the Chamber provides members with the support to grow and maintain business success. We facilitate innovative programs, cost saving business services, and education.

We act as a catalyst for business growth and opportunity, for innovation and partnerships, and for a diverse business community.  We lobby our government on behalf of business and we keep you informed of proposed regulations that can impact your business.
