The Summerland Chamber is dedicated to serving our members and providing services that help your business to succeed. In Summerland all business license holders automatically receive a membership to the Chamber of Commerce. We also welcome Corporate members from businesses outside of Summerland, and Associate members made up of Summerland non-profit organizations.
As a Chamber we offer a number of services and benefits including:
- Monthly Business after Business networking events
- Free and affordable marketing options
- Money saving benefits programs
- Access to education programs delivered by partner organizations
- Recognition within the community through our Business and Community Awards Gala
- Rental of our fully equipped Board Room.
Certificate of Origin (free service)
In addition, the Summerland Chamber of Commerce will certify documents for our members, as many countries require a certificate of origin in order to allow goods into their country.
For reasons of liability, all documents presented to the Summerland Chamber must be notarized before they can be certified. The notarization process can be costly and time consuming. An alternative to notarizing individual documents is through a Letter of Waiver. If a notarized Letter of Waiver for your company is presented to, or on file with, the Chamber, no additional documents to be certified by the Chamber need to be notarized.
Businesses who wish to have a Certificate of Origin stamped/signed must make an appointment with the Summerland Chamber Executive Director, Christine Petkau, by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling (250) 494-2686.
