About the Chamber

Burin Peninsula Chamber of Commerce

The Marystown-Burin Area Chamber of Commerce was established on the Burin Peninsula in 1991 and we served businesses in the Marystown and Burin area.  In December 2009 our boundaries were expanded to include the whole Burin Peninsula south of Swift Current.  To reflect the change in our boundaries our name has changed to the Burin Peninsula Chamber of Commerce.

We are excited about these new changes and look forward to serving businesses outside the Marystown and Burin areas!
