Since 1910, our organization has been the voice of business in Delta, British Columbia, Canada. Our vision is simple ... "strengthening commerce and industry because Delta matters."

If your business is in Delta, you need to be a member of the Delta Chamber of Commerce. If you are a Chamber member, drop in and tell us about your business and your plans so we can help you connect with new customers, suppliers, opportunities and each of our communities.

The Delta Chamber of Commerce is a federally-registered, non-profit corporation of businesses and community organizations. It was originally established as the Delta Board of Trade on March 26, 1910 and, in 1961, changed its name to the Delta Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is governed by the Board of Trade Act administered by Industry Canada.

It serves as the only Chamber of Commerce in the City of Delta, British Columbia, Canada to create and maintain a prosperous environment for business, industry and commerce in our community, province and country.
