Greater Niagara Chamber Of Commerce


Our vision is for the Niagara Region to be at its economic and social best. Our mission is to power commerce through advocacy, winning connections and world-class communication. We strive to be collaborative, non-partisan, inclusive, respectful, accountable, forward-thinking, and passionate.


The Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce was formed by a group of business people who decided that a strong, regionally based business organization is needed to address the issues facing businesses in Niagara.  With the support of business and community leaders, the GNCC is interested in building bridges between businesses across the region to maximize networks and services, to provide better learning environments and to advocate to all orders of government with one strong voice for business.
