The Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce serves businesses in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, and is a member-driven organisation of individuals and businesses that unites to advance the economic, financial, and civic interests of the North-western community at the forefront of the provincial government's Ring of Fire thrust, one of the most promising mineral development opportunities for critical minerals in the province. The Chamber pools together resources to provide learning opportunities for members, address policy concerns, create contacts between members, and seek to unite businesses to pursue shared objectives.

CSR-in-Action's President, Bekeme Olowola met with the Chamber's President, Charla Robinson and Member Relations Director, Thera Chicoine, to discuss opportunities for collaboration with the chamber and other members around its programs and services based on three main pillars: advocacy, engagement, and empowerment, during which a plaque of membership was presented. As a member, CSR-in-Action will engage other key stakeholders to advance the community's economic, financial, and civic interests, as part of a burgeoning corporate business ecosystem in the region.
Particularly, with the acceleration of operations in the Canadian mining and exploration industry and with sustainability emerging as a core component of business strategy for efficient and dynamic corporate organisations, CSR-in-Action is poised to provide world class services to North American extractive industries and other sectors, including financial services, telecommunications, agriculture and manufacturing, and to provide business intelligence and critical insights for businesses and investors seeking to penetrate the African business terrain.
According to Bekeme Olowola, "Being a member of Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce, Canada, allows us to extend our advocacy for sustainable business practices to North America. We are grateful for the opportunity to join this prestigious group and look forward to all that it offers, whilst contributing our expertise to it and the business environment."
CSR-in-Action had previously been accepted to the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), the leading voice of the mineral exploration and development community in Canada, with particular focus on supporting a competitive and responsible mineral sector.
