Administrative history

Currently in its fourth incarnation, which began in 1947 as the Brampton Chamber of Commerce, the Brampton Board of Trade is a local chamber of commerce organization. In 1964, its geographic coverage expanded to become the Brampton and District Chamber of Commerce, to serve commercial development in Bramalea, Chinguacousy Township.

Presidents and chairpersons have included many people who would also serve as Brampton Mayor, including Kenneth Chisholm, E. O. Runians, T. W. Duggan, and Franklin W. Wegenast. Presidents represented by fonds at the Region of Peel Archives are Cecil Chinn and Ken Hay, both professional photographers, and Sam Charters, the Brampton Conservator newspaper publisher.
