About Us

Diversifying Canadian Business,
One Connection at a Time

Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) is the only chamber of commerce uniting and advocating for the over 28,000 LGBT+ owned and operated businesses in Canada.

This group is a powerful one: they generate over $22 billion in economic activity and employ over 435,000 Canadians. Their impact on the economy is profound, but there are still barriers to accessing resources and partnerships to make Canada’s economy more inclusive. That’s where CGLCC and its network comes in.
