The Voice of Business in Belleville
The Belleville Chamber of Commerce has been honoured to serve the business community since 1864. Originally chartered as the Board of Trade for Hastings County, businesses were required to participate. In 1921 it transferred to Part II of the Board of Trade Act, renamed the Belleville Chamber of Commerce and represents one of the most oldest chambers in Eastern Ontario. As the region developed, Chambers were incorporated in Quinte West and Prince Edward County and we work together regularly representing the Bay of Quinte riding for both the provincial and federal governments. North of the 401, Belleville also shares the Hastings, Lennox & Addington riding with smaller chambers up to Bancroft and east through Napanee. Although we are separate Chambers representing different cities and towns, we take a regional approach to our endeavours. After all, business knows no boundaries.
We are here to help your business prosper. We connect you to other businesses and the community; we represent you at all levels of government and we share our influence to support your interests as they support the community. Knowing your needs helps us ensure Belleville has a strong, growing and thriving community for you to be a part of.
Today, we represent and celebrate the success of more than 450 businesses which range from small home-based single proprietorships to large corporations. Since 1920, the Chamber has had 5 different office locations throughout the city. Today we are located in the historic Log Cabin at 5 Moira Street East. The cabin is almost as old as the Chamber itself, originating in Eganville and brought to Belleville in 1978 as part of the City’s Centennial celebrations. As the “front door” to our community the Log Cabin contains a Visitors Information Centre virtually supported at DiscoverBelleville.ca for the city which is open year around. Our door is open to members, tourists, and local residents alike and we encourage you to come on by and see what we can do to help your business prosper.
