Your Chamber is committed creating the best possible business environment in Hinton & area.
The Chamber of Commerce is the premier organization to further the interests of business. In recent years the Hinton & District Chamber of Commerce has been involved in rewriting the Offsite Levy Bylaw, one of the most important changes in our community in a very long time; has had significant input on the Municipal Land Use Bylaw, critical regulation for business; and has provided input in every proposed change that might impact local business.
Support does not stop there, however. Your fees also support the Provincial, Federal and International Chambers to ensure that the important views of the business community are reflected in government decision making. It is important for business to support the Chamber both with ideas and with financial support by buying an annual membership.
"I came to Hinton because I loved the mountains. I found a community that was accepting, which just made the mountains that much better."
2017-2018 Board of Directors
Committed Business Owners
In the past years, the Chamber has been dominated by business owners focused on making Hinton a business-friendly community. This Board understands how challenging it is to run a business and has maintained a consultative relationship with the Town of Hinton. This has allowed our business community a voice in municipal decision-making as we have successfully implemented an Offsite Levy Bylaw to really clarify development risk and have had input on the new Land-Use Bylaw to ensure a forward-looking law.

President - Jason Cumby
Relocating from his home town on Vancouver Island in 2008, Jason has called Hinton home for the past ten years. The small town feel with big city heart makes Hinton an ideal place to raise a family while prusuing the dream of business ownership.
Jason and his wife Lisa bought Apex Autobody Dec. 1st, 2014 and have had great success due to the over whelming support of the community and surrrounding municipality's.
"I want to give back as much as I can. Having a business, model staff, and customer base with the same sense of community makes Hinton a great place to do business."
Being elected president June of 2017 has afforded Jason the opportunity to help and learn from other small business's within Hinton.
