Business Chambers and Associations

The Havelock Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit organization that currently represents approximately 55 businesses in the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen (HBM) and surrounding area.

The mandate of the Havelock Chamber, as approved by its members, is to:

  • Work with Municipal Council and staff to support, protect and promote/encourage the economic well-being of all businesses in the HBM Township.
  • Speak as one voice for all business interests in the Havelock and greater area community.
  • Provide information (via a website) for all businesses currently in HBM Township and any new businesses wishing to establish themselves within our community.
  • Provide mutual assistance and an opportunity to network with all business interests in the community.
  • Promote HBM Township and local communities as a viable economic place to visit and to grow a new business.

  • Through its many varied programs, events, and activities, the Peterborough and the Kawarthas Chamber of Commerce advances and promotes the well-being and interests of local businesses and communities they serve.
  • Chamber members have access to an Employee Benefits Group Insurance program plan that is totally customizable to their needs. Our medical, dental and disability plans are affordable – even if you are a company of one.

The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) is the indispensable partner of business and Canada’s largest, most influential provincial chamber. It is an independent, non-profit advocacy and member services organization. The OCC has 60,000 members, including large multinational corporations, small-to-medium-sized enterprises, labour unions, postsecondary institutions, non-profits, associations and close to 160 chambers of commerce and boards of trade.

The OCC’s mission is to convene, align and advance the interests of its members through principled policy work, value-added business services and broad engagement to drive competitiveness and economic growth in the province.

Supporting business growth in Ontario.

The OCC offers programs that support the growth and capacity of Ontario businesses. Through the Discover Ability Network, we connect businesses with tools and supports that help them become more inclusive employers and tap into the persons with disabilities talent pool. Through our export and trade events, businesses have the opportunity to meet with foreign governments and trade delegations to help them make new business connection and expand into global markets.

Note:  If you are a member of Havelock Chamber of Commerce you are automatically a member of OCC and receive broad OCC  benefits.
