MAYOR'S STATE OF THE CITY ADDRESS

Each year the Burlington Chamber of Commerce hosts the Mayor's State of the City Address; it is commonly called the Mayor's most important speech of the year.

The 2015 State of the City Address is Mayor Goldring’s fifth address to the city and will be a direct and candid dialogue with the Burlington community on how, collectively, we can continue to position this vibrant city for prosperity.

"Burlington is the best mid-size city in Canada," says Mayor Goldring "and, as such, our citizens continue to enjoy a high quality of life”

Working together with a clear focus in mind, Mayor Goldring hopes to maintain Burlington’s genuine reputation as the best city in which to work, live and play.

Following a short presentation by Ms. McMahon, event attendees will have the opportunity to ask her about the issues that are important to them and their business.

What will be the impact of the proposed pension plan?

BURLINGTON CHAMBER'S SEMINAR SERIES EARNS PROVINCIAL RECOGNITION

BURLINGTON CHAMBER'S SEMINAR SERIES  EARNS PROVINCIAL RECOGNITION

BURLINGTON CHAMBER'S SEMINAR SERIES EARNS PROVINCIAL RECOGNITION

Author Administrator

 

The Burlington Chamber of Commerce has earned a Chair’s Award from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) for the second year in a row. The Burlington Chamber was recognized for their seminar series on the implementation of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). This year’s award was presented at the OCC Annual General Meeting & Convention in Toronto over the weekend.

The HST seminar series helped businesses transition to the new Harmonized Sales Tax. Five sector-specific workshops were held reaching over 450 companies. The series was a direct response to calls for help received by the Chamber about the implementation of the new HST.

 

“The Burlington Chamber of Commerce found a way to help its members with the transition to the new harmonized sales tax with the creation of the seminar series and therefore exemplified the leadership that companies are looking for,” said Len Crispino, President & CEO of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.

 

Tamer Fahmi, Chair of the Burlington Chamber of Commerce elaborated, "We are very pleased to be recognized by the OCC for these seminars.  One of the Chamber's mandates is to provide education opportunities to help our members run their businesses better and the rollout of the HST was a case of new legislation that business owners didn't fully understand. Our seminars filled that information gap. We were proud to partner with BDO to put on the series and Rino Bellavia of BDO did an excellent job leading the seminars.

 

The seminar series was very well received by members with most events running at full capacity. The seminars resulted in the renewal of many members and based on the success of the series; the Chamber received a Chair’s award the previous year for its development of a similar series focusing on helping members through the economic uncertainty.

 

The Chair’s Awards were among several awards presented to chambers for their leadership and innovative programs and services. The OCC Annual General Meeting and Convention is the main policy-setting conference of the chamber network in Ontario.
