About the Chamber

The Chamber has been serving its members since 1994  

The Chamber based in Toronto and members located throughout Canada is an independent, non-profit organization, with strong working links with both Canadian and African businesses and governments. The Chamber is also affiliated with the South Africa-Canada Chamber of Business in Johannesburg. With this link the Chamber is able to identify business partners and opportunities through its South Africa based counterpart.



The Chamber's mission is to serve as a resource and catalyst for its members and for Canadian companies in general in developing their business interests with Africa. It offers a broad range of services by:

  • Providing access to a broad cross-section of relevant contacts and to current information on investment and trade.
  • Serving as a Canadian point of reference for African trade missions and African companies.
  • Collaborating with similar organizations across Canada and with counterparts in Africa.
  • Providing networking opportunities for members by organizing meetings with high profile speakers, chosen for their significant knowledge of important issues of interest to members.
A dynamic and influential business organization dedicated to promoting and developing business interests between Africa and Canada. The Chamber provides a focal point for establishing business contacts and networking opportunities, serving as an influential advocate with governments, and advancing common interest agendas for a diverse and vital membership.
