CEPCO evolved from cooperation among the City of Chilliwack government, the Downtown Chilliwack Business Improvement Association (BIA) and the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce. In 1998, it was incorporated as a private company under the BC Companies Act. The partnership furthers its representation of the community through public and private sector strategic alliances and committees that oversee development in the principal areas of opportunity. The City of Chilliwack Council appoints all members to the volunteer Board of Directors.
