The chamber accomplishes collectively what no business can do alone.
The Prince Edward County Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit, member driven organization. Originally established in 1905 as the Picton Board of Trade, the Chamber was incorporated in 1979 as the Prince Edward Chamber of Commerce. We advocate, support, assist and promote business in our area to grow and strengthen our community. The PEC Chamber is an active member on more than 10 committees and advisory groups in PEC and the Bay of Quinte region and regularly meets and collaborates with the Belleville and Quinte West Chambers, extending our local network and reach. We are also actively involved with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce on projects and advocacy activities and with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
We are committed to helping create the conditions for growth and to improving the competitiveness of The County business community through our lobbying efforts at every level of government.
