Canada 150 - Boards of Trade

During our country's 150th anniversary celebration of confederation I will write posts titled Canada 150 with a link to a publication or website I find that may help you tell the story of your Canadian ancestors.
Click on the Canada 150 label on the right or at the bottom to see all the posts.

Today I have for you...

The Boards of Trade

The Board of Trade (or Chamber of Commerce) is a network of merchants and companies that unite to promote the businesses of a country, province or town. They usually have benefits for members. You can check for Board of Trade or Chamber of Commerce reports in local or provincial libraries.

At one time I was a director of the Chamber of Commerce in our small village. We organized the annual festival and the yearly village garage sale which drew people from all over the province and from neighbouring US towns.
