History

The Peace River & District Chamber of Commerce came into being on the 14th of March 1911 and was later registered in 1921 when…

Six businessmen in the Peace River District delivered a message: “The Chamber would work for the betterment of the community as a whole; to ensure the growth and health of the business community by being a lobby group on their behalf to the village council, and to work with other Chambers of Commerce throughout the Province of Alberta to ensure that Provincial Legislation was “Business Friendly”.
