About the Chamber

The Bragg Creek & Area Chamber of Commerce was founded in the early eighties by a small group of long-time residents and business owners.

Our vision is a diversified economy that contributes to a thriving community.

Our mission is to act as a resource that supports and advocates for the business community in Bragg Creek and area.

Our Values

  • Collaborative Community – To achieve our vision we must work together as a community and with all levels of government.
  • Accountability – We recognize that our actions impact the whole community.
  • Integrity – We consistently honour our word and are transparent about our decisions.
  • Respect – We value the opinions of all members as they contribute positively to the decision making process.

Our work is focused in four areas:

Community Promotion

Advocacy

Membership Services

Economic Development

Community Promotion

Our chamber is proud to partner with other community organizations to build and strengthen the Bragg Creek community. We collaborate with surrounding communities, especially Calgary, linking to the many associations in Bragg Creek and to local governments including Alberta Culture and Tourism.

We promote tourism through marketing campaigns and by sponsoring three key festivals each year: Taste of Bragg Creek, Bragg Creek Days and Spirit of Christmas, which showcase local businesses and allow the public to experience all that we have to offer.

The chamber also maintains the visitbraggcreek.com website and several social media sites aimed at visitors as well as produces an annual printed business directory.

Advocacy

The Chamber acts as a bridge between the residents and business owners of Bragg Creek and Rockyview County. With this relationship cultivated and fostered, we aim to be better understood and supported at a municipal level. We offer our help in navigating Rockyview County with those who need assistance or are experiencing frustration.

Membership

We are constantly striving to provide value to our members and to grow our membership. We hold monthly meetings where we bring in guest speakers and offer refreshments and plenty of time for networking. Our goal is to educate, offer support, and to foster connections and sharing of knowledge about doing business in Bragg Creek.  We also ensure we reach out regularly to our businesses to ensure we understand their issues and needs and that the Chamber can serve as the voice for our business community.

Economic Development

The Chamber’s vision is that Bragg Creek & area has a diversified economy.  While our work has often focused on promoting and growing our prominent tourism industry, we plan to become a resource to other industries in our area such agricultural, education/training and home-based businesses and to support new initiatives that help us diversity.

Come out to a monthly meeting, meet new people and see what we’re up to! We meet the third Wednesday of every month (except July, August & December) at 7:00 p.m. at The Countrywood on 36 White Avenue.  We are all volunteers and are always looking to grow.
