About Us

The Chamber of Commerce serving Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows has been working for our two communities and our membership since 1999. Independently, the two chambers were incorporated around 1910 but were dissolved during World War One. After the War they were reinstated and decided to join both chambers to better serve our communities.

Working on behalf of business and our members, the Chamber’s collective purpose is to foster a thriving, prosperous business community. The chamber proudly represents and promotes over 490 businesses in and around our cities and region. Through our organization, members have the opportunity to contribute to the community and influence all levels of government for positive policy change. In addition, members receive benefits that include nationally negotiated discounts and educational and networking opportunities of value to their businesses.
