Vision Statement

“Temiskaming Shores & Area Chamber of Commerce – provides a dynamic network and a representative voice for our community businesses.”

Who We Are

The Temiskaming Shores & Area Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit organization comprised of businesses, professionals, residents, and community groups working together to ensure a healthy economic and socio-economic base to benefit the entire community. 

Your Chamber of Commerce harnesses the tremendous potential of the private enterprise system and the community at large as a unified “Voice of Business,” enabling its membership to accomplish collectively what no one person can do individually.

How We Work

The policies and programs of the Chamber and its work are determined by its membership and its elected volunteer Board of Directors, made up of a number of persons representing a cross section of the South Temiskaming Area and through their input and the contacts they keep with local, provincial, and federal governments we are able to both receive and reflect the needs of our area.

They, in turn, employ staff whose basic responsibility is to organize and execute the Chamber’s programs and carry out its policies.

The Temiskaming Shores & Area Chamber of Commerce operates a four-season Tourism Information Centre, working in conjunction with the many municipalities, museums, attractions and businesses of South Temiskaming.
