MEMBER BENEFITS

Since 1948 we have been working to support Salt Spring Island small businesses and grow the economy. Members have a variety of reasons for joining the Chamber, a non-profit association who’s sole purpose is to support our members and the community at large.  One of the reasons is for special member benefits.

On a daily basis we are contacted for referrals for local business and services and as a member your company will get these referrals!  Many businesses and associations believe that belonging to the Chamber is an integral part of contributing to the economic and social community of the Island. If you are in business on Salt Spring Island, we invited you to be a part of the Chamber of Commerce – help towards making Salt Spring a great place to visit, live, work, play … and do business!  We offer a number of special member benefit packages listed below.
