Background and History

   
     In 1997, the World Chambers Network (WCN) was established as the global online chamber hub. The founding institutions were the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry (now the Paris Île-de-France Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry, one of the largest individual chamber of commerce in the world) and the World Chambers Federation, a division of the International Chamber of Commerce.
  

     In 2002, ChamberTrust Management International (CTMI) was incorporated in Vancouver to administer a subset of technologies and specific online WCN  trust programs, such as ChamberTrust and related applications.
  

     By 2013, WCN's founding institutions and partners prepared to incorporate and develop it as a full commercial venture. Meanwhile, CTMI had expanded to cover non-chamber applications as well (i.e. health services) with programs such as the Chamber-eVault family, and other cloud computing-type services.
  

     By the summer of 2016, CTMI  became the parent of the WCN global chamber hub (which is still located at www.worldchambers.com) and its digital chamber services... 

  
     Now  CTMI adds a much expanded portfolio that services all businesses and organizations, whether chamber of commerce or not. This reflects the digital age of connected commerce around the globe, and with that the need for trusted trade facilitation and intellectual property protection across all borders and facets of business, commerce and organizations.

  
     While CTMI has private-sector ownership, a significant share block is reserved for chambers of commerce worldwide.
