Chamber in Niagara, Ontario  launches cross-border network with Buffalo-Niagara Partnership

Posted May 1st, 2017 on Niagara At Large

Niagara, Ontario – The Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce and the Buffalo-Niagara Partnership, Western New York’s regional Chamber of Commerce and private sector economic development organization, are pleased to announce a new strategic agreement that bridges their two organizations.

Under this agreement, members in one organization will be entitled to associate membership in the other. This agreement is designed to build cross-border business relationships and create new opportunities in our bi-national economy.

In a new era of uncertainty in international relations and trade, the GNCC and the Partnership have worked together to strengthen economic ties between Niagara and Buffalo.

This partnership is the latest step in the work the two organizations have undertaken to strengthen our trade links and thin our border. The GNCC and the Partnership have previously worked together on issues such as cross-border trade, pre-clearance at the border, and expansion and promotion of the NEXUS program.

An associate membership to the Partnership offers benefits such as:

  • ·      Access to Partnership events and programs at member pricing
  • ·      A quarterly newsletter including details on events, important cross-border policy updates, and expert blog posts targeting cross-border business
  • ·      Opportunities to highlight member brands in Western New York
