About the Chamber
The Chamber is member-driven and professionally staffed. Our role in the community is to support businesses and their employees. The Chamber is made up of businesses from many industries and many sizes, as well as associations, nonprofits and individuals. Our strength lies in our diversity and commitment to each other. Our members work collectively to accomplish what no one business or individual could. The chamber advocates on behalf of business-to-business and person-to-person networking, collective marketing and social opportunities between members. The Chamber offers training, seminars and consulting for growth-oriented businesses. We answer questions and provide information to and about the community and the success of members. For residents, the Chamber is a reliable source of community information and a dependable resource of business referrals. General information and business referrals are also available by telephone (541) 889-8012 or toll free (866) 989-8012 during office hours Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. The Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce is located at 251 SW 9th St and is stocked with a wide variety of brochures, maps and information about our city. We welcome visits from business people, residents and tourists alike. Our Chamber ambassadors help with grand openings and ribbon cuttings for new businesses. The Chamber holds a weekly Chamber Forum Luncheon so our members are up-to-date on what is happening in our community.
