Surrey Board of Trade to Debate Federal Government Policies in Calgary October 13-14

At the annual Canadian Chamber of Commerce Convention to be held in Calgary, Alberta from October 13-14, the Surrey Board of Trade will be seeking support for five federal government policies from Canadian Chamber of Commerce members – chambers of commerce and boards of trade, representing 200,000 Canadian businesses. The Surrey Board of Trade will release their policy wins after the debates. There are 63 federal policies being debated at the convention this year, similar in format to UBCM and FCM conventions.

“The Surrey Board of Trade actively participates in composing federal government policy to help businesses and the economy. This serves as one of our member and stakeholder value propositions,” said Anita Huberman, President & CEO, Surrey Board of Trade.

Surrey Board of Trade federal government policies that will be debated, from an economic lens, are focused on:

Keeping Ports Connected
On The Move: A Call for Sustainable Funding in Public Transit to Tackle Congestion
Connecting Incentives to Vehicle Battery Recycling Programs
A Focus on Refugees
Time For a New Pension Paradigm

There are 430 chambers of commerce/boards of trade in Canada. The Surrey Board of Trade is one of the top 10 largest chambers of commerce/boards of trade in Canada.
