Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce

About the GNCC

The  Greater Niagara Chamber of Commer e (GNCC) is a non-profit, non-partisan, membership-driven  organization comprised of 1,500 business enterprises, civic organizations, educational institutions and individuals. We are  dedicated to helping businesses and organizations succeed in order to ensure the long-term economic and social prosperity of the Niagara region.

Too often, businesses and entrepreneurs feel isolated and struggle to achieve their personal and business goals. We are here to help make your business better by providing you with networking, savings, marketing opportunities and a large audience to make it easy for you to power your business growth.

We impact public policy at all levels of government so that you can succeed and prosper in local and global economies. We are also members of the Ontario and Canadian Chambers of Commerce, which makes our voice even stronger. Our councils represent specific demographics and guide our programing to ensure Niagara achieves its economic and social best.

Testimonials

I am proud to be a member of the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce as the Chair of the Women in Niagara Council. Being supported by a Chamber that understands the challenges for women in business and works toward equity in our community has been a rewarding and very worthwhile experience for me. The staff are an invaluable resource for our council as we work to create opportunities for women to learn, grow and be celebrated.

The membership with Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce has been very beneficial to White Oaks Resort & Spa. The exposure to our Niagara community of businesses through marketing opportunities, and networking events has led to great partnerships for our property. We have been honored to be chosen as the venue for the annual Niagara Economic Summit which brings key businesses influencers into our property to discuss our region’s future. The educational and networking opportunities with GNCC are extensive and relevant to our business. We have been able to provide our team members with professional growth opportunities as well. Overall our membership with Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce remains one of our most important and fruitful strategies for doing business in Niagara Region.
