#history

Chamber History

The History of the Beausejour & District Chamber of Commerce began in 1938 when it was founded by dedicated business leaders of our community. Over the years, leaders of our business community have served to provide education, leadership, unity, marketing ideas and entertainment for the betterment of our area.

1938- 2013, 75 years of Chamber History ‘Bringing Businesses Together’

In 2013 we celebrated our history of 75 years in our communities for the full year.

Over the years the Chamber’s membership has cycled with rises and falls of the economic health of the Beausejour area. Membership has varied from 48 to a peak of 104 members. The majority of the operation of the Chamber was dedicated to promoting and marketing commerce in the area, providing training for businesses, town beautification and leading and lobbying major civic changes in the district. The activities of the Chamber have varied over the years and our involvement has been from that of a leadership role to that of an information source for the RM of Brokenhead, Beausejour Council and various departments of the Provincial Government.

The Chamber continues to support the growth of the area welcoming new businesses and families into the community.

In 2014 our delegate, Past President Lea Bangert presented a Resolution on Healthcare affecting Manitoban’s provincially. The Resolution was approved and steps were taken by the MCC to take the concerns forward to the Manitoba government
