Local Focus   Global Reach



The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce recognize the importance of cost-saving measures to “level the playing field” among businesses. The MCC Affinity programs do just that. Affinity Programs (money saving discount programs made available only to chamber of commerce members) are negotiated on behalf of local Chambers of Commerce in Manitoba. The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce negotiates these programs to reduce the members’ cost of doing business and to assist in making businesses more competitive.
