We hope January finds you healthy and safe so far, and looking forward with some measure of positivity to the Spring and beyond.

As part of our mandate to advocate on behalf of our members, we need your feedback. The Ontario Chamber of Commerce is committed to ensuring government understands the issues impacting business in this province, and has identified three advocacy themes expected to be most prominent over the coming year as:

  1. vaccine distribution and deployment
  2. re-opening businesses safely
  3. economic recovery

Please share with us any suggestions, questions, or concerns you have regarding these issues, plus any other areas of concern. Your voice is important, and we want to help amplify it at Queen's Park!

SAVE THE DATE! We're getting our Annual General Meeting back on schedule this year; it will be held on Wednesday, March 10. Please join us for this important (and short) virtual meeting - registration opens shortly. If you're interested in helping guide chamber activities and direction, consider joining our Board of Directors.

In other exciting news - our Charity Golf Tournament is back this year! More details to come soon, but be sure to mark your calendar for Tuesday, June 8 for an excellent day of golf at the always impeccable Peninsula Lakes!

If there is anything we can do to support you, please don't hesitate to reach out - we always want to hear from you!

Stay well. Stay safe.
