Hamilton’s oldest institution, the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to contributing to the success of our members and our community.

Welcome to the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce.

The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce is the third oldest chamber of commerce in Canada, created in 1845 by Isaac Buchanan and other merchants considered to be the “Founding Fathers” of Hamilton.

Comprising many of the great leaders in Hamilton’s history over its 170 years, the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce has harnessed the collective ambition of its thousands of members to play a leading role in Hamilton becoming an important and leading Canadian city during the 20th century.

Like the City of Hamilton itself, the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce is undergoing a tremendous transformation. We are an ambitious organization that strives to meet the various needs of our small business members while also providing city-building leadership to renew Hamilton.

We measure our success by the success of our members and the City of Hamilton.
