That’s right, we renamed the Giant Business Garage Sale.  And we moved to a better site right in the middle of town at the Elk’s Hall.  This way you can swing by after work or on your coffee break and see the awesome deals to be had.  Some of our great businesses will be back for the 4th year in a row now, and  other businesses are joining, making it IQOption even bigger and better for everyone.  Lunch needs are covered — Sammys will be back selling their scrumptious pizzas.  The Chamber is having a Pizza Party for it’s members right at the sale. 

The sale hours are 12 noon to 8:00 P.M.  We will be updating the list of exhibitors as they register.  If you want to be a exhibitor a this truly awesome sale just fill out the registration form and send it to the Chamber office. All the info is on the form.

Small Business Week is a national celebration of Canadian entrepreneurs and their contribution to Canada’s economy. The Chambers throughoutAlberta have been organizing Small Business Week activities for 33 years.  It takes place every year during the third full week of October. Events held during the week bring together entrepreneurs—and prospective entrepreneurs—at conferences, workshops, luncheons and awards dinners aroundAlberta.  One of the goals is to provide them with opportunities to learn, network, share ideas and socialize with their peers.  The other goal is to recognize those businesses that are outstanding. 


We encourage you, as you go about your daily routines, to think of nominating the businesses that you are visiting for an award.  These award handed out in October, show just how much we appreciate that Vermilion and Arean Businesses are here for us.  So think outside the box:  is your hairdresser an “Employee of the Year”? was the caterer at the wedding you attended a “Business of the Year”? who represents the “Spirit of Vermilion” to you?

The Vermilion & District Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce a freshly rebranded  Home, Garden & Golf Show.  Our ambitious plans include celebrity speakers, new contests, headline entertainment and a signature golf show.  We are confident that everyone will find something of interest to them.

A new feature in 2013 was our ‘Ask an Expert’ area.  This feature has grown out of the popular speaker’s area and reflects similar developments in some of Canada’s highest-attended home shows.  This area will provide a flexible field of local home and garden experts with the opportunity to answer questions from showgoers in a casual one-on-one environment.  This is a perfect opportunity to enhance your reputation, generate new leads and help build your industry.

We hope to see you all in 2014.




Celebrating Women’s Strengths

We are very excited to announce that the 5th Annual Women’s Conference was a great success.  Each year seems to get better than the last.  The guest speakers provided great information and lots to think about.  Please join us again in 2014 and if you have any suggestions you would like to see for next year please let us know.

Join us this year for the 107th Anniversary of the Vermilion & District Chamber of Commerce.  Since 1906 our community has showed continued support for the businesses in our area.  The AGM is an important part of that support as it allows members to contribute to the direction and representation of the Chamber for the upcoming year.  The new board members will be elected as well as any new bylaws will be passed. 


The luncheon will be held at the Legion from 11:30 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.
