“Fundamentally a volunteer-based organization, the Calgary Black Chambers society is creating a better Calgary based on its foundational values of Mentorship, Scholarship, Fellowship and Advocacy to elevate the success of current and future professionals in Calgary”

~ Jon Cornish, Co-Founder & Board Chairperson

Areas you can contribute


Our fellowship committee works to tighten the bonds of our community, organizing monthly meetings, events, and our speaker series.


Our advocacy committee enhances the network of the CBC, creating connections and having conversations to forward the cause of BIPOC people in Calgary.


Our scholarship committee works alongside the Calgary Foundation in adjudicating and distributing our Scholarships.

Social Media

We’re older professionals who might not be the most proficient with Socials; improve your skills and help us share the message!


Our mentors help students become professionals, with soft skills training, goal setting and introductions to members of various professions.


From time to time we’ll set up special committees for volunteers to share their expertise. Signing up as a volunteer is the first step in joining our community.

Join us in making Calgary the best place to live and work in Canada!
