The Mactaquac Country Chamber of Commerce, YOUR BUSINESS LINK, promotes community development by providing representation and services to businesses located in Mactaquac Country.
Located in the heart of New Brunswick, Mactaquac Country encompasses the communities of Harvey, Keswick, Millville and Nackawic.
Some of the many benefits provided to our members are networking and educational opportunities, benefits to improve their bottom lines (group insurance rates, a free listing on our website, reduced transaction rates, joint tourism advertising and more). We also have an advocacy role and are involved in the economic development of the area.
To ensure that our voice is heard, we provide, as appropriate, representation on and leadership to various committees in the community: the Nackawic Region Economic Development Team, the Nackawic Adjustment Committee and the Mactaquac Country Region Shop at Home Committee as examples.
