Making The Chamber Better For You

Your Board of Directors is actively working towards an open and transparent Chamber of Commerce. Soon, you will be able to access Chamber meeting information (date/time), meeting agendas and meeting minutes, all online. In addition, we will be seeking your comments, suggestions and feedback on what YOU need from your Chamber of Commerce through an online survey. 

We are proud to say that the Chamber has made great progress on the social media front through two separate Facebook pages (Merrickville Chamber and Merrickville - Jewel of the Rideau) as well as a brand new Instagram account. We urge you to “like” our Facebook pages and follow us on Instagram to stay up to date with the latest information on our great village.

We welcome any and all feedback, comments or suggestions! Please do not hesitate to contact us at
