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 2,500 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. Find out more about our board and election process here
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. Alternatively, you can find out more about our services or how to join by clicking here.
We work with a range of strategic partners to add values to our members including BusinessNZ, ExportNZ and the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce & Industry (NZCCI). We have a strong association with the South Canterbury Chamber of Commerce to ensure we support our entire region.
The Chamber has a great family of sponsors who help us to keep memberships as low as possible and enable us to provide more services to our members. We couldn't do what we do without their support. Find out more about our current sponsors, or how you can be a sponsor of The Chamber here.
