The objective of the Sparwood & District Chamber of Commerce is to support existing businesses, promote opportunity for new businesses and improve all aspects of the community’s well being through leadership in economic development and diversification, and promotion of community events.

Sparwood’s economy is driven almost exclusively by a single sector: mining. The chamber of commerce understands this single-track situation and supports the business community in acknowledging and capitalizing on its shared interests and inter-dependencies.
