About Us

We advocate for, and encourage support of our members. Our partnerships help provide our organization a larger voice to foster the business environment and facilitate the networking and educational forums that are a major ingredient in our strategic plan. Finally, we connect member businesses with each other and with consumers through the most complete online business directory you’ll find here.

The Owen Sound & District Chamber is a fraternity of close to 500 member businesses, not-for-profit community organizations and city, provincial and federal offices within our jurisdiction.

The office is staffed by Chamber CEO, Peter Reesor and Administrative Assistant, Peggy Bielaski. Our board is made up of business owners and managers and meet the third Wednesday of each month. Throughout the year, the Chamber hosts an agenda of networking events, information sessions and special forums focused to help members work ‘on’ their business, not just ‘in it.’

The Owen Sound area is a great place to live. We are passionate about the value that local business brings to our community. Not a member? See the value of belonging here. Your membership includes a FREE online directory listing that will get you results.

We encourage your feedback on any business related matter and welcome your participation as committee chairs or members.   Your business will benefit from your involvement.

Finally, we invite and encourage comments or questions on matters specific to your business or business idea.
