Welcome to the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce
With a quality of life unique to the west, Williams Lake is where lifestyle and work opportunities combine to create a highly productive and profitable environment. Our Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce represents the business community by providing services, benefits and leadership for positive growth, and is committed to providing a unified voice for the interests of the business community. Chamber members and directors have a vested interest in seeing our region continues to grow and sustain a strong level of economic development.
The Chamber is a resource that exists to serve its members. When needed, the Chamber will work as an advocate to find resolutions or to put your business in touch with someone that can help.
In addition to providing information and advocating on our members’ behalf, the Chamber offers great networking opportunities. On the last Thursday of each month (with the exception of August and December), the Chamber hosts luncheon meetings. These functions are an excellent opportunity to meet with fellow business people from our area, develop networking relationships, and learn about other local and regional businesses. As well, the monthly luncheons feature guest speakers presenting information on the range of topics that are both timely and important to our business community.
The Chamber of Commerce offers many benefits to its members, including reduced credit & debit card fees, savings
on vehicle fuel & propane purchases, accommodations, products & services, Chamber of Commerce Group Insurance Benefits, and natural gas-flat rates. In addition, members enjoy discounts on Chamber-sponsored seminars and workshops, reduced rates for fitness passes at the Cariboo Memorial Complex, and a listing on the Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce’s website.

The Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce operates the Visitor Centre (VC) for the City of Williams Lake. The VC, located at the Tourism Discovery Centre on South Broadway off of Highway 97, offers information on attractions, events, community contacts, and resources. The information covers not only our city, but also the surrounding area, and the province of BC. Visitors coming to Williams Lake from around the world rely on the Visitor Centre to provide information on local accommodations, restaurants, and interesting activities. The staff also helps visitors plan their trips either travelling through our area, or using our area as a destination. Local residents and the general public use the information provided at the Visitor Centre to keep current on events within the community.
