Membership in Canada’s most influential business association offers exclusive and unique benefits, whether you are a small business owner, a mid-sized Chamber of Commerce or a large Canadian enterprise.

International Chamber of Commerce (ICC)
ICC is the global business organization representing private sector interests from every industry around the world. Through its exclusive affiliation with ICC, the Canadian Chamber provides its members with direct input to the many global organizations where ICC has an official seat at the table: the WTO, WPO, World Customs Organization, CODEX, UN Environmental Program (UNEP), UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the UN Development Program (UNDP).
BIAC and the OECD
BIAC is the doorway to providing private sector input to OECD policy deliberations. Each of the 30 industrialized countries of the OECD has a business association that is a member of BIAC; the Canadian Chamber represents Canada.
As the Canadian National Committee to the ICC International Court of Arbitration, the Canadian Chamber’s Arbitration Committee maintains an extensive panel of Canada’s (and in many cases, the world’s) leading practitioners of international arbitration. This panel of arbitrators contains well over 50 arbitrators who are familiar with all manner of legal systems, reside in over 10 different locations worldwide and speak more than a dozen languages.

In addition to the Canadian Chamber’s advocacy work on behalf of business, we also assist businesses of all sizes in reducing their bottom line costs through a number of benefit programs.
The Canadian Chamber continues to provide members and non-members alike with unique and essential trade services that allow for fair trade and investment across international borders:
