The federal government has released its long-awaited draft legislation on the federal carbon pricing regime. Provinces and territories must put into place carbon systems that meet certain criteria, called a "benchmark". For those jurisdictions that do not meet these criteria, the federal government will impose its own carbon pricing regime - referred to as a "backstop". The backstop has two parts. First, the carbon levy that distributors of fuel will have to pay. It won't be charged at the pump, although it will increase the price of natural gas and petroleum and, in some places, electricity. Second, is a separate regulation that will only apply to facilities that emit a large amount of greenhouse gases.  Read More
 
 
We know that businesses have a number of options for advertising their product or service and it's increasingly challenging to know where to spend your dollars to obtain a valuable return on investment and know exactly what the best avenue is to market your product or service. I know the same challenge is true for businesses evaluating their participation in trade shows. We have businesses who are sometimes reluctant to exhibit in trade shows primarily due to factors such as time, cost and staffing and not knowing what their return on investment will be. However, there is still unprecedented value in trade shows, if you devise a strategy and make sure to include some key elements.  Read More

Following the announcement on January 18, 2018 of a 0.25% increase in the prime lending rate, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce (CCC) urged the Bank of Canada to be cautious about future increases. While Canada's economy is strong, the CCC remains concerned about slowing growth as we look ahead in 2018 and into 2019. Further rate increases motivated in part by government policies that drive up the cost of living could negatively impact consumer spending as well as the housing market in Canada. Read More
 
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce (CCC) has been at the forefront of the discussion on Canadian businesses' social responsibility in Canada and abroad. We believe good conduct is not only ethical but is good business practice and an important part of the Canadian brand. As our members invest in communities and create jobs all over the world, they have implemented numerous stringent initiatives on a variety of issues including business conduct overseas, the duty to consult with indigenous peoples and reducing emissions to combat climate changes. These initiatives have been part of an ongoing conversation led by the Canadian Chamber between businesses and governments. Read More
