Arnprior Business to Business

"Every business has a story worth telling"

The B2B, our newsletter, for which, you, our valued member can communicate what’s new and what you want to get out to the wider business community. It could be an open house you are hosting, extended hours, charity function, new services/ products, etc.

Please share information for the newsletter no later than the 26th of each month by emailing Documents sent must be in word or jpeg format. The newsletter will be sent out on the first Tuesday of each month.

Good Afternoon Members,

Get your calendars out!  The Chamber has a busy Spring planned. This month we have 2 events, our monthly social on May 15th hosted by Oldies 107.7, as well as our 1st Annual Business Case Competition to be held on May 30th at Walter Zadow P.S.  This competition will replace the bursary given out to graduating students at A.D.H.S. and St. Joe's in Renfrew.  Know of a high school student who would be interested in participating?  Have them contact Julie at

In June, we will host our annual golf tournament at Mountain Creek on Friday, June 21st.  Proceeds from this event will go towards the Business Case Competition. Interested in sponsoring a hole or entering a team?  Check out the flyer below for more details.

Over the past several months, we have tried to feature a few members giving back to our community.  Often times, we find these on Facebook or from a customer that has stopped by your business.  Please don't be shy about sending us your Good News! We want to share it!  

Now that Spring is finally here, we are sure you are looking forward to the May long weekend.  Don't forget that stores that participate in the Shop Local program will be giving out double stamps that weekend so be sure to stop by and show your card!

We hope to see you at one of our next upcoming events.

Have a great month!
