I have been a member of Salt Spring Island Chamber for many years now, and found it to be a great resource for my business. There are many fantastic networking opportunities available, as well as keeping me in touch with the concerns, ideas and solutions in our local business community. I am so happy to be a Chamber member.
We are happy to sign our business up for a membership to the Chamber. Inclusion in the Welcome Bag Program will be a great way of gaining exposure for our business among the newly arrived to Salt Spring Island.
We are very happy with the support that the Chamber of Commerce has provided over the several years that we have been members. The referrals that we have received from Janet and the Chamber staff has made a real difference in our business. Do yourself a favour and join!

The Board of Directors of the Salt Spring Island Chamber of Commerce has written to Minister Doug Donaldson, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources, to encourage a change in the designation of Salt Spring and the Southern Gulf Islands from urban to rural. We have this designation due to the Capital Regional District's urban designation.
