See what our members are saying about us!
Jennie’s Diner – Jennie Hamel
“Being with the Chamber of Commerce has made a significant difference to our business. We have been able to reach a large audience through the Lakeland and Edmonton area. The Chamber also surprised me by nominating myself for the Alberta Business Awards of Distinction in 2016, which allowed us to reach over an audience of 11,000 people just through Facebook.
The Chamber is very involved with the community. They host the Annual Chili Cook Off support the SPCA, which I always put a team in, as it is a lot of fun and we are able to promote our homemade chili to people who have never tried it. I have also joined the annual Taste of Bonnyville coupon book. We sell a portion of the coupon books at the diner, which draws more people to us. Both of these events do not cost me anything to participate in and expose the Dine to more business opportunities.
Another great aspect of the Chamber is their group insurance program. As a small business owner I am able to have a minimum of 1 -2 employees registered with benefits; which is tremendously helpful, as I do not have the ability to meet the minimum requirements that a private insurance company would require.
I am very grateful to be a part of such an active Chamber of Commerce that is continuously opening up doors for small businesses within the community.
AB HUB – Bob Bezpalko
“As the Executive Director of Alberta HUB, the regional economic development alliance of Northeast Alberta, I have the privilege of working with the Bonnyville and District Chamber of Commerce focused on Business Retention and Expansion. Their passion and expertise in inspiring and encouraging local economic growth for their members is outstanding. Alberta HUB is very proud to partner with the Bonnyville and District Chamber of Commerce in providing resources for their businesses to be successful.”
Lakeland Credit Union – Amber Hughes
“Lakeland Credit Union is a locally owned financial institution that strongly supports the Bonnyville Chamber of Commerce philosophy and business initiatives. Beyond participating in community based events, we appreciate and utilize the valuable benefits that our Chamber membership provides. We would recommend any Lakeland business owner to get involved with the Chamber to stay connected with our marketplace.”
