Ontario's Business Advocate
The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) is a federation of 160 local chambers of commerce and boards of trade in the Province of Ontario, representing 60,000 businesses of all sizes, in all economic sectors and from every area of the province. In its mandate to advocate strong policies on issues affecting its members, the OCC is currently focused on economic renewal and business competitiveness. Its over-arching goal is to make Ontario the most competitive jurisdiction in North America.
In 1911, The Associated Boards of Trade of Ontario was founded in Toronto by forty-five local boards of trade as a non-partisan voice for business in Ontario.
In brief, a Chamber of Commerce is a group of business people who for mutual benefit, or to fill a perceived void in a given geographic area, join together to meet those goals through a program of action. A Chamber of Commerce or Board of Trade may be dedicated to any one or any number of specific purposes such as: economic development, tourism promotion, lobbying government or event management.
The Associated Boards of Trade of Ontario was founded specifically to lobby the Provincial Legislature to ensure that legislation and regulations passed by the Legislature fostered economic progress and supported business success.
