What is the Chamber of Commerce?
The Chamber membership is comprised of business and professional people who believe in the free enterprise system and who wish to share their concerns, opinions and experiences for the overall benefit of the community.
We encourage all members to be actively involved in one of seven standing committees structured to serve every business sector. Committees participate in establishing the priorities, objectives and Action Plan the Chamber will implement over the short - and long - term.
The Pictou County Chamber of Commerce, established in 1983, is an integral part of the Pictou County community, with strong connections to all businesses, all levels of government, the educational system and other community organizations. The Chamber speaks as a united voice on behalf of the business community, using its strength of membership to positively impact issues facing business and the community at large.
The Chamber is a leading business advocacy group, monitoring provincial and federal legislation affecting the business community. Membership in the Atlantic and the Canadian Chambers is our link to regional and national business communities.
Your Chamber is dedicated to ensuring Pictou County's continued growth and prosperity. We accomplish this through the combined efforts of our members - people like you!
Working Together - With You and For You
The Chamber of Commerce network in Canada is unique. No other business group benefits from a grass roots base of "action cells" in every federal riding (the local chambers), as well as separate provincial structures and a broad national federation which speaks for more than 130,000 business leaders.
Although each level of the chamber system is autonomous and financially independent, the joint development of the local, provincial and national Chambers has required the coordination of activities, policies and programs among the three organizations. This cooperative spirit has made the chamber movement the powerful force it is today, ensure a unified effort on behalf of businesses from main street in Pictou County to Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
The Chamber's unparalleled nation-wide partnership serves your interests...and merits your support. It can be counted on to speak up for business and it counts on your involvement at every level.
New members are always welcome and needed.
