About the Chamber

Our Mission

To market and strengthen our businesses, while enhancing quality of life in our community.

The Ontario Area Chamber of Commerce 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, associations, non-profit organizations, and individuals from many industries and sizes. Our strength lies in our diversity and commitment to each other. Our members work collectively to accomplish what no one business or individual could do on their own. The Chamber advocates on behalf of networking between both businesses and individuals, along with collective marketing. The Chamber offers training, seminars, and consulting for growth-oriented businesses.

For residents, the Chamber is a reliable resource of community information and business referrals. 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 and the surrounding areas. We welcome visits from business people, residents, and tourists alike. General information and business referrals are also available by telephone at (541) 889-8012 or toll-free at (866) 989-8012 during office hours. We are open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our Chamber Forum Luncheon is hosted on a weekly basis to keep our members up-to-date on community happenings.
