Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)


The objects of the Stratford & District Chamber of Commerce shall be to maintain and improve trade and commerce, conservation and good management of community resources, and to promote the economic, commercial, industrial, tourist and conventions, civic, agricultural and environmental welfare of the City of Stratford and the surrounding district.

What is the Chamber? The Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of the business community. The Chamber is not a civic club, charitable organization, or department of city government. The Chamber is a private, not-for-profit corporation. It unites hundreds of business and professional firms, thus creating a unique central agency working to improve business and build a better community. Over 90 percent of the membership is composed of small businesses interested in prospering and creating a healthy environment in which to conduct business.

The Chamber's budget is comprised almost entirely on the financial investments of its members, because the Chamber is not a government agency or club. But most important, the Chamber is people...people just like you. It is people who realize that through the Chamber they can accomplish collectively what no one of them can do individually. The strength of the Chamber lies in attracting the greatest number of members, creating a pool of resources from which can be drawn ideas, energy, and finances. In your area, throughout Ontario, throughout Canada and in virtually every country around the world - you will find the Chamber of Commerce; an international partner that helps bring the global marketplace a little closer together. The Chamber today models the Chamber of yesterday -- a group of business people pooling their expertise and resources to support initiatives that will provide an attractive climate for free and competitive enterprise across all business sectors -- locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.


Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!

“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
