At the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce, we believe the success of local business goes hand in hand with a strong and positive community. In keeping with that, we operate terrific programs designed to foster both business and community vibrancy. Learn more about three of them below.
Got an AWESOME Idea? We May Have $1,000 for You!
The Newmarket Awesome Foundation provides hassle-free grants to those with ideas to make Newmarket a
more prosperous community. The foundation is not a charity; it’s an informal group providing money to make
good things happen in Newmarket. If you or your group have an idea that promotes education, employment or community involvement for those under 30 years of age in Newmarket, the Newmarket Awesome Foundation
wants to hear about it!
The NYPG hosts monthly events that incorporate professional development, networking and socializing in fun and relaxed settings. We connect young professionals, and you can connect with us on Facebook and Twitter. We launched NYPG in 2013 and now have about 80 members.
Helping people discover the best ways to get from A to B

SCCY works with businesses in northern York Region to promote active and sustainable transportation. Carpooling, public transit, cycling, walking and flexible working arrangements reduce stress on our lives, roads and the environment.
