About Us

The Collective Voice of Business in the Nicola Valley

Established in 1906 - before the City of Merritt's own incorporation - the Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce represents over a century of commitment to growth and development in the Nicola Valley. During this time, the Chamber has worked diligently to connect local business owners and organizations with resources and each other, established long standing community programs and promoted their vision of a valley that's stronger together. 

The Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of members of the local professional community. Through regular Board of Directors meetings and an Annual General Meeting (AGM), this Board collaborates on existing and new Chamber initiatives.

Our Partners

In addition to our wide network of benefit providers and membership incentive providers, as well as our Chamber members across the Nicola Valley, the Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce works closely with several different partners within the community. We'd like to say thanks to these on-going partnerships for their continued support of the Chamber mission by way of collaborating on Chamber projects and programs.
