The Parry Sound Area Chamber of Commerce represents the interests of over 375 small, medium and large businesses across a variety of sectors, as well as not-for-profit membership. We are an independent, membership driven organization where policy and direction are taken from a volunteer board of directors and committee structures. We work on behalf of you and your business to grow a more robust and sustainable business community here in the Parry Sound Area.
The Parry Sound Area Chamber of Commerce has been representing our members and the community for over 118 years. In 1897 we were incorporated under the “Canadian Board of Trade Act” with 44 businesses as members. Today we have over 350 offering many benefits such as seminars/workshops, infinity programs, marketing, promoting, networking and a host of others.
Our newest endeavor as the Chamber is Information Parry Sound Area, the designated Information Centre.
We partner with many area business associations such as the Downtown Business Association, the Business Centre, Canadore College, the Labour Market Group, Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve, YMCA Employment Services, Festival of the Sound, and of course many government and community groups. With working together as partners this makes our area a strong and vibrant community.
Our area is a great place to live, work and play. We do have a tourism component within our website however if you’d like additional information our regional tourism organization is Explorers' Edge and you can click here for their direct link.
