Established in 1859, the Canterbury Employers’ Chamber of Commerce (The Chamber) has two main goals:
- to help local businesses improve their enterprises
- to ensure our members can operate in a business friendly environment
We are a non-for-profit membership organisation meaning everything we do is for our members. We have approximately 2,600 members and are the largest business support agency in the South Island. We are led by a board of twelve directors, all who have business experience within the Canterbury region and a genuine, hands-on understanding of the local business environment.
With a long history of providing business support in the region, we are highly regarded as one of the leading business support organisations in the country, alongside our BusinessNZ Network, and a valued stakeholder of decision-makers at a local and national level. Our head office is based at 57 Kilmore Street, Christchurch, New Zealand. Please pop in to learn more, or give us a call on 0800 50 50 96.
