Digital Office Solutions – your local Xerox Authorized Agent – has been supporting the Muskoka-Parry Sound region for over 30 years and from the beginning has been a member of the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is a true asset to the community, we have always benefited from their promotions and networking opportunities, but they went above and beyond during Covid. The Chamber kept us in the loop on all the Government Programs, provided Rapid Test, and adapted to support our local businesses in new virtual ways like the “Found it in Muskoka” Campaign. I recommend becoming a member, their support is invaluable!Whitney Stalkie, Account ManagerDigital Office Solutions
Stan Darling Insurance has partnered with The Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce through our affiliate office A.W. Shier Insurance. Our partnership involves bringing meaningful seminars on current insurance issues. Our first seminar (Not for Profit D&O) was well received with over 30 attendees. The Chamber was instrumental in providing the seminar to the membership. The Chamber’s resources, particularly the staff, make it easy for member companies to provide services to our community. We look forward to continuing working with the Chamber to offer more seminars in the future.David Denyer C.A.I.B. Vice President, CommercialStan Darling Insurance

Membership in the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce offers many great benefits. One that I like very much is the Esso / Mobil Fleet Card program. This is a 3.5 CENT per litre discount on fuel. It was very easy to register for and over the years has meant tremendous savings to my business. I recommend to Chamber members and non-members alike to explore the various perks of being a member.Paul Mascarin, OwnerMuskoka KIA
As a member of the four local chambers of commerce, Leon’s (Muskoka franchises) knows the value of trade associations and the benefits gained through membership. We take advantage of the Esso fleet discount program and the Chamber Group Benefits plan which we have had in place for more than 30 years. We have also hosted Business After Hours events in both our stores which provide terrific opportunities to network and reacquaint with like-minded members of the business community.
Brenda and particularly Marny, the Bracebridge chamber’s long time mainstay office manager, are very capable in their roll of running a successful and effective chamber of commerce. From planning through execution, Chamber events are well organized. The end result meets the goal of each function.
Communication of relevant information is timely and consistent be it through the newsletter or ad-hoc communiques – always worth the read. As the well-known saying goes, “Membership Has Its Rewards” and that certainly pertains to all members of the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce.Andy Brooks, Franchise OwnerLeon's Muskoka
We fully integrate the Chamber into our marketing and communication efforts. They provide us with the ability to be involved in a cooperative based, broader appeal message that only a responsive, innovative agency can deliver. Communicating what the greater community has to offer, and showcasing our respective roles in that message, is critical to the success of our business. We have always been able to count on the Chamber to fill that role for us.Jamie Hopkins, General ManagerSanta's Village Family Entertainment Parks
Action First Aid has been thrilled to become a member of the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber provides not only a tried and true method of connecting with our local customers, but also a simple and effective means of networking with other local businesses to help us grow and succeed locally. The Chamber also provides several other wonderful opportunities for our business through their partnerships with other local organizations, and we have been really pleased to have a chance to take advantage of each opportunity as they have been offered to Chamber members. The Chamber staff are friendly and knowledgeable and have been incredibly helpful to us, particularly as a new member! I truly appreciate the regular email updates that keep me in touch with upcoming events and with what is new and exciting at the Chamber. Having recently had an opportunity to host the Chamber Business After Hours Event at our own business, we were thrilled to see the immediate results of a evening of networking with our local chamber members. This successful and enjoyable night has been yet another example of the measurable benefits of being a Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce Member!Jen Action, Training & AED Account ManagerAction First Aid
Being a retail shop owner in the BIA of Bracebridge, we feel also being a member of the Bracebridge Chamber adds value to our business. One in particular is the Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan. As a small business, being able to participate in supplemental health insurance can be very costly. With our Chamber membership we can get group rates to reduce our costs. In addition, the Bracebridge Chamber team keeps us informed on provincial guidelines and other information that have been invaluable during these unusual times to operate a shop. So yes, in my view, Membership does have its benefits!Marc BaudendistelTEA on the 45TH /The Chancery Lane Co
The Chambers Group Benefits Plan was a very important benefit to offer to myself and my staff, all of whom had young families. The plan is flexible, generous with benefits, cost-competitive and adaptable based on our needs and usage. Administration was straightforward and the Plan representatives were always prompt and helpful. I was able to offer benefits that were as good as, or better than, those offered by much larger companies.Neil Hutchinson, Ph.D.Retired – Founder of Hutchinson Environmental Sciences Ltd.
