Membership

Membership in the Fort Simpson Chamber is from January to December of each year.  Membership has a number of benefits and allows local businesses to share their contacts and collective wisdom.

BENEFITS

One benefit is inclusion in the Fort Simpson Visitor’s Guide book.  This book is published every few years, and is sent to Visitor Bureaus across the Dehcho Region and beyond.  In addition, it is available at the Fort Simpson Visitor’s Centre and at local businesses.

Another benefit is inclusion in the Fort Simpson Tourist Radio.  Tourism Radio is a popular feature for visitors who can listen to ads from local businesses, listen to interesting historical information, and enjoy music from local artists.  It is updated regularly with local events like golf tournaments or other community events.

Of major benefit is to have a presence on the Chamber website.  Membership allows each member a login so they can update their online business directory listing, contact information, submit Hot Deals, Job Postings, and Event requests, view their own chamber website statistics, and find other members.
