• Who We Are

  • The Atlantic Chamber of Commerce (ACC) has been championing the cause of business in Atlantic Canada since 1896. Originally incorporated as the Maritime Board of Trade, the organization changed its name in 1974 to the Atlantic Provinces Chamber of Commerce (APCC), when the Newfoundland & Labrador Chamber of Commerce joined the Maritime Board. Following federal incorporation in 2013, APCC once again changed its name to become the Atlantic Chamber of Commerce Inc.

    As the voice for business that actively partners to impact a strong, vibrant and growing Atlantic Canada, ACC is a catalyst to influence, educate and advocate on policy related issues to support business, deliver high-value services and opportunities to our members, and to support and promote initiatives that contribute to sustainable economic growth in the region.

    A not-for-profit, member-based organization comprised of local chambers and corporate partners in Atlantic Canada, today ACC represents more than 16,000 businesses through its network of 93 chambers of commerce and boards of trade and 25 corporate partners in the four Atlantic provinces.

    As a member of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, ACC is also connected to a national network of more than 450 chambers of commerce and boards of trade from coast to coast—the largest and most influential business association in Canada.
