Madoc and District Chamber of Commerce:

The Madoc & District Chamber of Commerce is a not for profit volunteer based organization working for our members. Each member has a unique business application and we strive to represent and support them. We work with big and small businesses, local government and community groups to initiate programs and coordinate efforts to improve the economic well-being of the whole community.

The Madoc & District Chamber of Commerce represents the business community and provides representation for the issues effecting the business and social climate of our community.

The Chamber works closely with your Municipal Council, and Economic Development. The Chamber of Commerce carries event insurance for local community events that fall under its umbrella. This insurance coverage has enabled various groups to proceed with activities that they would otherwise not be able to economically do.

The Board is active in our community as both business owners and volunteers.
