The West Vancouver Chamber is committed to creating gatherings that are informative, relevant, and fun. Whether it is business driven, social, or governance all our events focus on the community and business of West Vancouver and our sister community on Bowen Island.

Signature events are the Leader to Leader series with business leaders and community guests, updates from MP Patrick Weiler and MLAs Karin Kirkpatrick and Jordan Sturdy, the long run Business After Business networking socials, social events such as the Holiday Gathering supported by British Pacific Properties, plus the Business Excellence Awards.

The power of a member-driven organization is that many of the best ideas come from members who recognize an opportunity to connect and share information or ideas. If you have a suggestion, please contact us at
