    The Sylvan Lake Chamber has ordered rapid testing kits which employers can use to test their staff. Kits cannot be used to test family members or customers, and weekly reporting is required to use this program. It is also recommended you test your staff once or twice weekly.

    Rapid testing screening programs can identify pre-symptomatic and asymptomatic cases – people who don’t know they’re infected with COVID-19 – so they can be isolated early to stop the spread. 

    We expect to receive our order soon but will have a limited number of test kits as we determine the interest and demand in our community, as well as our capacity to effectively administrate the program.

    If you are interested in receiving test kits for your business, please use the link below and we will do our best to accommodate those that meet the criteria.

    The Sylvan Lake Chamber is proud to release our video: OUR TOWN, a shop local initiative funded by the Federal Government of Canada.

    Local video agency, IQ Productions wrote and produced the video and helped us share the long history of entrepreneurism and fortitude of Sylvan Lake through trying times - and to illustrate the domino effect buying local has.

    Businesses sponsor kids sports, donate to the many non-profit businesses, create local jobs, mentorship opportunities for youth, they sponsor a great many local initiatives such as the Sylvan Lake Winter Village and many other things that enhance our quality of life.

    Our hope with this project is to remind Lakers of the power they have when they choose to "shop local" to impact our overall quality of life in Sylvan Lake. 

    Please watch. Please share. Please continue to support our local businesses.

    We're excited to help bring the Sylvan Lake Winter Village to life for the 2021/2022 season! It has been a labour of love from the get-go. Indeed, it takes a village to #lightthelake! 

    Did you know it costs over $30,000 each year to make this seasonal happy-place happen? Not to mention the many volunteer hours, planning and fundraising - nevermind the labour involved with everything from checking a gazillion light strands before wrapping dozens of tree's, bushes and planters! But it's all worth it, we think you would agree.

    Our sponsorship drive is officially in full-swing, and we hope that you will choose to help us wow our residents and visitors for yet another magical season.

    Below we have outlined the various sponsorship opportunities, and if you would like to get along, here is a link to book your sponsorship.

    In the meantime, be sure to follow the Sylvan Lake Winter Village on facebook and instagram!

    Sylvan Lake, Alberta July 14, 2021– The Sylvan Lake Chamber will receive $30,240 of federal shop local funding—funding that will expand the chamber’s ongoing efforts to encourage patronage of community businesses.

    "We're excited about the success of our application and the opportunity it gives us to help money stay local," says David Phillips, President. “COVID-19 threw a wrench in our 2021 plans requiring us to cancel or postpone several projects. We are incredibly thankful to the federal government for this grant because we can now move forward and better yet, expand on our original plans." 

    The funding will support the production of a Why Shop Local video, a Sylvan Lake Dining Guide, the expansion and marketing of the Sylvan Lake Town App so more businesses can promote special deals and offers, and the launch of ChamberMarket, a shopping platform that allows businesses to sell products and services online.

    “Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, community chambers have truly been a lifeline for businesses,” says Ken Kobly, Alberta Chambers of Commerce President and CEO. “As we transition to reopening and recovery, we still have a long road ahead to rebuild our economy. This federal funding will help chambers do what we do best: support local job creators.”

    A third round of funding applications is currently being processed.

    1. In June, a public call for nominations went out, and the Chamber received the highest number of nominations ever!
    2. Following that, nominated businesses that meet the basic criteria are notified that they were nominated.
    3. If they choose to accept the nomination a formal application is submitted.
    4. Finally, an anonymous panel of volunteer judges from the community are selected to review and score each application. Once the scores are tallied, the finalists and one winner per category are determined.


    Due to COVID-19 restrictions, The Mermaid Ball + Business Awards, a 300+ person event will NOT be held this year, however the show does go on...just not as it has before.

    This year, award winners will be revealed on Saturday October 17th when the Sylvan Lake Chamber of Commerce debut's a Business Awards video, now in production, at small watch parties at several businesses around town. Details for this event will be released soon!
