About Us

The Canada-UK Chamber of Commerce was established over 97 years ago. 

In 1921 Canadian businessmen and women established ‘the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain’ with the objective to co-ordinate the activities of Canadian companies based in the UK and Canadian exporters to the UK.

In 1927 the Chamber was incorporated as a UK company and in 1970 the Chamber changed its name to ‘Canada-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce’. Its objectives were broadened to include working for the interests of companies from both sides of the Atlantic, whether for exporters, importers, inward or outward investors.

The Chamber’s mission is to be the foremost non-governmental authority on all aspects of two-way trade and investment between Canada, the UK and Europe.

In the UK contacts are maintained principally with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, City of London Corporation, UK foreign direct investment agencies, regional development agencies and local enterprise partnerships.

The Chamber works closely with the Canadian High Commission, the Canadian federal and provincial government departments, the London offices of the Governments of Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Québec, the British High Commission, British and Canadian Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade, municipal authorities and trade associations.

In the UK the Chamber is a participating member of the Council of Foreign Chambers of Commerce, and the Chamber maintains close links with other bi-lateral Canadian chambers of commerce in Europe and around the world.
