The Ottawa Board of Trade advocates for its members’ interests within the City of Ottawa. All Board of Trade members are encouraged to take a participatory role in the development of the Board of Trade’s policies by attending events and joining our committees. As members of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, we seek to promote our members’ views through both organizations. We have established the following committees, councils and task forces to help the staff and Board perform their duties in an effective manner.

All committees, councils and task forces report to the Board and have specific mandates. In most cases, they are responsible for developing considered policies within their areas of expertise that, once approved, are used to guide the Board of Trade staff on its actions.

Committees, councils and task forces are chaired by volunteers who are actively supporting the work of both the Board of Trade and businesses in our community.
