While the Chamber is focused on a broad mandate to bring commerce to the area, the BIA is focused on specifically bringing commerce to the downtown core.

The Chamber and BIA work together on many projects, and in some cases there appears to be overlap in their initiatives. This overlap should be seen as a strength of the community. In all cases both organizations are interested in the betterment of Carleton Place & District as a whole.
