Why Join Our Chamber?

Here are some of the highlights that we are currently offering with your membership.

  • The Trail and District Chamber of Commerce’s (TDCOC) staff and management is committed to deliver the highest level of service to our membership.  We aim to achieve this goal by attending ongoing, comprehensive training delivered by a world-class membership management system.

  • The TDCOC recently held an annual Business Walk from Fruitvale to Rossland.  This day is dedicated to learn more about local businesses through face-to-face interviews.  The purpose of this event is to gain understanding of issues and opportunities of our existing businesses and forward those to the local governments.  It also aids to increase awareness of the programs and services offered by community partners, chamber of commerce, and other partners.

  • The TDCOC is also a member of the BC Chamber of Commerce which allows our organization and its members to be heard on the provincial government’s level.  Through our grassroots policy process, our membership endorses approximately 70 new policies each year which reflects the needs of BC businesses.

  • Members provide insight into the BC economic landscape and voice concerns and opportunities for BC businesses.  Data gathered through BCMindReader.com is contextualized and shared with government.  It informs our advocacy efforts and the policy process.  As a member of our community you’ll participate in surveys on topics you care about—all related to BC business and the provincial economy.  We also share these insights back with you—so you can make data-driven decisions about your business.  Check out this short video:  https://youtu.be/d_LSjwZs_Ys

As a member of the Trail & District chamber of Commerce, your M2M card will be mailed out to you upon paying membership dues. This card gives members access to a list of local perks and offers.

How it works:

  2. When shopping at participating M2M businesses simply show your M2M card and enjoy your discounts! We will send the cards to you annually once you have paid your membership dues.
  3. Each business that participates will be highlighted on a master list (on the Chamber website) along with the discount or offer for that business. If you are interested in participating in the Discount Program please send an email to info@trailchamber.bc.ca

How to sign up your business to offer discounts:
