“We have been involved with the Chamber of Commerce movement in Canada for over 20 years. On arriving in Cuenca in late 2010, the first thing we did was look for a Chamber of Commerce. We knew they would be able to connect us with honest, reliable merchants, trades-people and medical contacts. We were welcomed with open arms, so typical of the people of Cuenca. We received all the info we needed to begin our lives here in Cuenca. Since then we have received a wealth of information about our city, gone on tours to historical sites, manufacturing plants and botanical gardens. In addition, we have met many new friends from all over the world through our association with the Chamber. We are proud to be associated with the Chamber and proud that we are Member #001 of the Cuenca for Expats program of the Cuenca Chamber of Commerce.”

"We have been members of the Cuenca Chamber of Commerce for two years and feel that our membership has paid off for us by taking the tours offered by the Chamber, attending seminars, and meeting newcomers at the monthly expat meetings. It's a good starting point to learn about the community."

“When considering a move to a strange and different place, one must consult with and rely on people and organizations that can serve as members of your team that truly have your interests at heart. My wife and I found such a team member in the “Cuenca for Expats” program sponsored by the Cámara de Comercio de Cuenca.Through this organization and their wonderful program, we have extended our network of experienced and very helpful people, Ecuatorianos and other expats alike; discovered and visited nearby places to learn more about the culture of Ecuador; received advice and presentations on such matters as the visa application process, real estate purchases and rentals, medical insurance and health care options and more. We consider our membership to have been priceless with benefits far outweighing the cost. It smoothed our transition to life and living in Ecuador!”
