What We Do

The Chamber of Commerce is an association of business owners within the Powell River area.

By banding together, the Chamber works effectively to improve business and the community. Businesses pay an annual membership fee, which supports the activities of the association and gives members a voice in the Chamber.
The Powell River Chamber of Commerce is run by a volunteer board elected from within the membership at the Annual General Meeting. The Chamber Office is staffed with a manager and part-time assistant.

The main role of the Chamber is to act as a lobbying force on behalf of the member businesses.


Representing the membership at a local and provincial level, the Chamber becomes involved in virtually every issue in the community, working with city council and corporate partners to ensure that Powell River continues to grow and prosper.



The Powell River Chamber of Commerce is also a valuable resource for business start-ups and relocations.


We have a wealth of information including statistics, land use reports, licensing and regulations. We would be happy to assist you in the preliminary stages of opening a new business in Powell River.
