WHAT IS A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND WHY BE A MEMBER?
A Chamber of Commerce is the vehicle that enables people to work together to improve business - to build a better community and to develop better citizenship in the community, the province and the nation. Although the local community is a market in which business compete for customers, the common intention of the business leaders is to grow and improve this common market. Their Chamber is the means through which they can work together to achieve this goal.
The Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce is a partner to the leaders of our community. The Chamber's heritage is impressive having been founded in January 1916. Our mandate is to foster a healthy business climate while promoting business in our town. Each year the list of accomplishments of the Chamber of Commerce grows longer and the list of ideas, plans, and visions even longer.
