4. Attend an event. The Whitby Chamber of Commerce hosts more than 80 events each year, from free networking events, annual fun-filled tournaments hosted by the Young Entrepreneurs & Professionals Committee, leadership events such as the Mayor’s Luncheon, to our four signature events including full-day conferences like Connect Women and the historical Peter Perry & Business Achievement Awards.

There is something for everyone on our Events Calendar, take a look!

We know attending an event when you don't know anyone can be a bit intimidating. Luckily, you can usually find one of our Ambassadors greeting you at the front door. They're on deck to make sure you know where you're going, what's on the agenda and to introduce you to fellow members.
