Advocacy in Action
The Chamber develops economic, political, and social policies that affect the economic environment and quality of life in London.
How it Works
Issues are identified by Chamber members and member firms, further research is done by Chamber staff, committees and other volunteers, approved by the Board, and then presented to the municipal, provincial, or federal government.
Often times, the Chamber is invited to offer opinion and feedback regarding all types of business issues. From legislation changes to the Workers Compensation Act to pre-budget meetings with provincial and federal Minister's of Finance, Chamber staff and volunteers are on the ground working for the rights of members.

Two policy committees are on the front line of our advocacy efforts.
The London Chamber of Commerce acts as a unified voice for businesses of all sizes and interests. Active locally, provincially and nationally, the Chamber does not receive any government funding, making it the only truly independent business advocacy organization in London. This absence of government funding allows the Chamber to advocate solely on the behalf of members and not subject to influence or opinion.
Through a well-honed committee structure, the Chamber develops economic, political, and social policies that affect the economic environment and quality of life in London. The London Chamber also takes advantage of the highly-respected advocacy efforts of the Ontario and Canadian Chambers of Commerce to monitor pending and current legislation, regulation and policy, act on behalf of business to ensure the development and promotion of activities that ensure London's business community continued growth and prosperity.
