Buffalo Niagara Partnership

Buffalo Niagara Partnership

What we are great at:
We organize and undertake action to expand private sector jobs and investments in the Buffalo Niagara region and beyond. By focusing on three areas – advocacy, business development, and convening – we help individuals and organizations come together to mitigate issues and take advantage of opportunities to further regional, private sector growth.


The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is a privately-funded, economic development organization and the largest regional chamber of commerce in Western New York. We are comprised of some of the most established regional employers, representing a quarter of a million member employees.

The Partnership sets itself apart by presenting members with countless opportunities to connect. We specialize in bringing business people together to grow their network, learn from their peers, develop their career and participate in activism concerning current and future issues facing the business community and the region.


The Buffalo Niagara Partnership offers five industry specific Councils to its members.

  • CanAm Council The CanAm Council is the go-to resource for the business community on CanAm Issues. It works to create dialogue around the economic opportunities in our bi-national region.
