Chamber of Maritime Commerce
Founded in 1959, the Chamber of Marine Commerce is a bi-national, private sector, not-for-profit association that represents more than 130 marine industry stakeholders.
The marine industry is vital to our prosperity by enabling efficient trade within North America and around the world. As the safest, most efficient and environmentally smart method of carrying bulk freight, the increased use of marine transportation alleviates highway congestion, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and is a vital catalyst to overall economic growth.
The Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River waterway is the longest inland deep-draft navigation system in the world, connecting more than 110 commercial ports in Canada and the United States. In remote locations, a port might be nothing more than a single dock constructed to serve an adjacent industry. In urban areas, ports include multiple docks creating bustling harbours teeming with commerce in support of local business and jobs.
