MISSION & HISTORY.

SVCC assists, supports, promotes and encourages a vibrant business and industry environment while helping to create the best community in which to live, work, and do business.

The Slocan Valley Chamber of Commerce began 100 years ago as the Slocan District Board of Trade.

The organization, which became a Chamber of Commerce in the early 1960s, had periods of inactivity due to wartime, mining boom-and-bust cycles, and flagging volunteer energy.

In the early 2000s, the current Chamber was revived, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Along with ardent community support, the Chamber played a crucial role in rescuing Slocan Community Health Centre from closure.

WHAT WE DO.

The Chamber plays a key role in advocacy, tourism, and economic development in the community.

The SVCC is also responsible for the Visitor Centre, which co-locates with the Silvery Slocan Museum in a beautiful 1896 heritage building—the province’s first Bank of Montreal. Friendly Visitor Centre staff will give you information about what to see, where to stay and where to eat.

In our efforts to support our businesses and community we engage in a variety of activities throughout the year. To find out more, visit our LIVE, WORK and PLAY sections.

OUR COMMUNITIES.

The SVCC supports businesses from Summit Lake in the north to Lemon Creek in the south. Please refer to the MAP.
