Benefits of Membership


Benefits to boost your business success.


Being a member of the Manitoba LGBT* Chamber of Commerce means you believe in the importance of supporting LGBT* businesses.  It also means you know the value of building a strong business through community.

Your Manitoba LGBT* Chamber benefits begin as soon as you join.

If you want to super-charge you member benefits look at attending one of our monthly business growth events or volunteer to be on a committee. It’s up to you. Membership in the Chamber is designed to help you manage and grow your business and to fit YOUR needs and your time.

Why the Asterisk * in our name?

The Manitoba LGBT* Chamber of Commerce works with and serves businesses that are owned by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Two-Spirited people and other sexual minorities. We also welcome businesses owned by the sexual majority, when those businesses want to grow their business through inclusion, and reach LGBT markets. Thus, the asterisk is our effort to be inclusive of all. When we say the name of the Chamber we say “Manitoba LGBT-ALL Chamber of Commerce?
