The Grand Bend & Area Chamber of Commerce has been around since 1957. We are a small yet active Chamber serving businesses located in towns, villages and hamlets along Lake Huron’s shoreline corridor.
Our Members are located as far away as Sarnia and Goderich as well as closer to home in Arkona, Dashwood, Exeter, Forest, Grand Bend, Ipperwash, Northville, Parkhill, Port Franks, St. Joseph, Thedford and Zurich – and all points in between!
The Chamber had its roots in an earlier Grand Bend Promotion Committee in the 1950s which worked to promote tourism to the area and still today we provide Tourism & Visitor Services to the Municipality of Lambton Shores at the Welcome Centre located in Grand Bend, just 500-metres from the Beach that started it all.

Thank You Sponsors, Golfers & Prize Table Donors
On September 14, 2016 we held our annual golf tournament at Bayview Golf Course with 77 golfers vying for the trophy! Sponsorship opportunities sold out and local area businesses donated prizes for golfer appreciation.
Funds raised from this tournament go towards keeping the Welcome Centre open and operational year-round. The Welcome Centre provides tourism and visitor services to what’s dubbed the Grand Bend Area – which encompasses “borderless tourism” for visitors, tourists and residents in support of local businesses in Lambton Shores, Bluewater and South Huron.
Thank you all for making this year’s tournament our most successful yet! See you next year.
