About the Ontario Chamber of Commerce
For more than a century, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) has been the independent, non-partisan voice of Ontario business. Our mission is to support economic growth in Ontario by defending business priorities at Queen’s Park on behalf of our network’s diverse 60,000 members.
From innovative SMEs to established multi-national corporations and industry associations, the OCC is committed to working with our members to improve business competitiveness across all sectors. We represent local chambers of commerce and boards of trade in over 135 communities across Ontario, steering public policy conversations provincially and within local communities. Through our focused programs and services, we enable companies to grow at home and in export markets.
The OCC provides exclusive support, networking opportunities, and access to innovative insight and analysis for our members. Through our export programs, we have approved over 1,300 applications, and companies have reported results of over $250 million in export sales.
The OCC is Ontario’s business advocate.
2017-19 Strategic Plan
Our new strategic plan, Building on Success 2017-2019, outlines a series of overarching goals, objectives and strategies that will ensure that the OCC continues to create value for its constituents and stakeholders.
As a strong collective voice that is truly representative of our Chamber Network and members, we will continuously assess our effectiveness and search for opportunities to innovate, collaborate and partner. We will ensure that the issues and concerns of Ontario businesses are not only heard, but sufficiently addressed through a strategic and collaborative approach with the government of Ontario.
