About the Atlantic Chamber of Commerce
The Atlantic Chamber of Commerce Inc. /La Chambre de commerce de
l'Atlantique Inc. (ACC) has been championing the cause of business in
Atlantic Canada since 1896, and continues to promote and support
business and economic development in Atlantic Canada today.
Originally incorporated as the Maritime Board of Trade, the organization
changed its name in 1974 to the Atlantic Provinces Chamber of Commerce,
when the Newfoundland & Labrador Chamber of Commerce (NLCC) joined the
Maritime Board. Then in 1985, the provincial sections of the APCC
attained individual status as provincial chambers of commerce but
continued to operate under a common set of bylaws to support APCC's
policy and advocacy work.
In May 2012, APCC members voted to reintegrate the provincial chambers
of commerce as divisions of APCC. In January 2013, APCC incorporated
federally under the Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act and changed
its name to the Atlantic Chamber of Commerce Inc. /Chambre de commerce
de l'Atlantique to better reflect its new structure.
