The Williams Lake & District Chamber of Commerce  is the voice of business in Williams Lake and area.

We promote the well being of business in Williams Lake and district and foster a work-, stay- and play-at-home atmosphere to all residents.

Welcome to our newest members:  Anahim Lake Inn and Bella Coola Grizzly Tours Inc.

We have two resolutions to submit to the BC Chamber for the policy sessions at the AGM in May. We thank those who helped us in the gathering of information for these policies.

Did you know that Chamber members get fuel discounts? Now how timely is that?

Some of the discounts are for two cents per litre off and/or 3.5 per cent off total purchases of fuel, oil, top-up fluids and washes.

For this and a list of all other benefits, check out the Williams Lake and District Chamber of Commerce at where people can search for products and visitor needs.

Our website promotes local and regional events encouraging visitors to come to the area and increase their length of stay.

There is no cost to list your events on our website. Call 250-392-5025 or e-mail us at
