Active Advocacy

The Burlington Chamber of Commerce works on your behalf to ensure that your concerns and suggestions about operating a business are presented to the right people.  Our alliances with other Chambers and Board of Trade, including the Ontario and Canadian Chambers, provide us with information and access to all levels of government.  We are proud to be a proactive, not reactive organization.  We help draft policy rather than simply criticize it.  The Chamber delivers your views to the City of Burlington, the Region of Halton and the Provincial and Federal governments.

The Chamber advocates actively on your behalf through:

• Business-Political Forums
• All candidates meetings
• Input into City and Region policy planning sessions
• Pre-Budget consultations
• Advocacy letters
• Policy positions

The Chamber’s proactive approach means that we play a direct role in policy development.  Giving you peace of mind knowing that your interests are being communicated.
