The Chamber network is the most influential business association in Canada and is the national leader of public policy advocacy on regional, provincial, national and international business issues.
The West Lincoln Chamber is focused on fostering a strong, competitive economic environment that benefits West Lincoln and enables the best possible atmosphere to help the business community grow. In order to do that the Chamber strives to be the voice of businesses in West Lincoln.
To help effectively achieve progress in advocacy the Chamber has narrowed its key policy priorities to the following:
- Increasing funding for post-secondary institutions. The competitiveness of the local business sector is highly dependent on the ability to secure qualified professionals to work in all sectors, including IT, construction, manufacturing and health care.
- Ensuring all levels of government exercise fiscal restraint and control program spending
- A competitive corporate tax regime at both the provincial and federal levels of government. Also, local property taxes must be in line with neighbouring municipalities in Ontario
