“We are delighted to reach this milestone of 1,200 members. It shows the value the Oakville Chamber brings to Oakville businesses. We look forward to continuing to represent the growing voice of the business community” stated Caroline Hughes, Chair of the Board, Oakville Chamber of Commerce.

In September of 1949, the Oakville Chamber of Commerce (named the Oakville-Trafalgar Chamber of Commerce at the time) was incorporated under the federal Boards of Trade Act. The Oakville Chamber made headlines, as over one hundred business owners in Oakville met to form an effective, adequately financed organization to represent the needs of business in the Oakville area. At the meeting 59 applications for membership were received!

Since those early days, the Oakville Chamber membership has grown and evolved to become the voice of the Oakville business community. Through advocacy, corporate benefits, networking opportunities, events, business development and educational forums, the Oakville Chamber works to foster a healthy, engaged, and sustainable business environment and economy in Oakville.

To celebrate their diverse membership, the Oakville Chamber of Commerce launched the “I’m A Member Because” community campaign. The campaign was created by members, with members, for members. It features two videos and a series Chamber Members stating the reason their Chamber membership is important.


A special thank you to Media Rez Studios for producing the video, and Fotografia Boutique for photographing the Oakville Chamber membership. You can view the videos before every movie this summer at Film.Ca Cinemas, on CogecoTV, and on Intrigue Media screens throughout Oakville. You can also follow the campaign on the Oakville Chamber’s social media channels. Oakville Chamber members can join the campaign by sharing why they’re an Oakville Chamber member @oakvillechamber using #ImAMemberBecause.
