Advocacy

As 'The Voice of Business', one of our Chamber's primary mandates is to convey to government and to the public the concerns of its members. The Chamber makes both proactive and reactive presentations and submissions to government on a myriad of issues, which directly affect you and your business.


Committee Teams

  • Agriculture - Jon Krahn, Chair
  • Government Affairs - Doris Woodman-McMillan, Chair
  • Membership Services - Pat Sapielak


By participating on one (or more) of the Chamber's Committees you open opportunities to influence government, work on the development of Chamber policies, programs and procedures and to work with a great team of like-minded Chamber members.
