BCofC Stronger Together

The #BCofCStrongerTogether movement is a campaign to rally support for local business and to recognize the Burlington Chamber of Commerce as an indispensable partner to the business community. 

To honour and recognize the work that the Burlington Chamber of Commerce has done to support the business community in Burlington and beyond, December 2, 2020, has been declared Chamber of Commerce Day across the City. To see the official proclamation, click here.

The Burlington Chamber of Commerce has played a critical role in supporting the business community, factoring in all sectors and sizes of business, as a vital partner during the COVID-19 crisis. Early on in the pandemic, the Burlington Chamber committed to keeping the broader business community strongly connected, focussing on bringing leaders together and creating opportunities for collaboration and partnership to position Burlington’s economy for recovery.

2020 Distinguished Entrepreneur

POSTPONED until a later date. 

Due to the recent Provincial update in response to COVID-19 moving Halton Region into the Red – Control zone, we are sad to announce that we will be postponing our 2020 Distinguished Entrepreneur Event, originally scheduled for November 26th.

Honouring Kenna Danyliw and her accomplishments in her industry and our community is of utmost importance to the Burlington Chamber of Commerce and deserves the attention of the entire business community. In order to do proper justice to the profile of this award and our 2020 Recipient, this event will be reimagined in late Spring 2021 and will dovetail this celebration with our prestigious Business Excellence Awards Gala. Further details will be announced in 2021.
