A powerful, collaborative, and historic community

The Canada-UK Chamber of Commerce

Since our beginnings in 1921 as "The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain," our objective has been consistent: to coordinate activities between Canada and the UK.

In 1927 our Chamber was incorporated as a UK company and in 1970 our organisation's name permanently changed to the Canada-United Kingdom Chamber of Commerce.

Today our Chamber is comprised of representatives and leaders from some of Canada and the UK’s most recognisable businesses. For nearly 100 years, we have prioritised meaningful introductions to encourage and foster business development—now and into the future.
