About the Chamber

To unify the Niagara River Region and to promote it as a premiere place to live, work and play while promoting tourism, business development, quality of life and the history and culture of the region.


We represent the interests of small business, industry, and financial services, not for profits, tourism, religious organizations, and healthcare professionals. We are dedicated to serving our members through a diverse menu of programs and services available through our organization.
