Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce History

On July 21, 1920, the Saskatchewan Associated Board of Trade (SABT) was formed as a vehicle to unite the energies of business to build a stronger economy in the province. The original SABT could never have envisioned how important it would become to the growth of private enterprise in Saskatchewan.

The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce’s membership now includes 700 businesses, and 68 Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade who themselves have more than 10,000 members.
The Chamber network organizes and directs the energies of those who believe that a community worth living in, is a community worth improving. It enables members to accomplish collectively what could not be done individually. The principle of working together on matters of mutual interest is the foundation of the Chamber organization, whether it be at the local, provincial or national level.

The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce is operated by a Board of Directors which consists of 13 business leaders and has a staff of nine.
