  • Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Stouffville Chamber of Commerce – News

Local Updates

With all the excitement of a new year commencing, we are also reminded that it is also the beginning of the second half of Town Council’s term in office. We should see some indication of accomplishments during 2017 as the Councilors move towards re-election in 2018.

The Chamber is advocating for Town Council to create a distinct marketing plan to promote the attributes of Whitchurch-Stouffville to various desirable clean industry sectors to locate their businesses here. We need to grow our industrial and commercial commerce and without any promotion we will be left behind in development.

It is regrettable that the Town will be without a Chief Administrative Officer as of February 1. Rob Raycroft, the acting CAO has resigned. The Town will also be losing Town Clerk Michelle Kennedy as of January 31st she has announced her retirement. These two key senior positions must be filled in order for the Town to conduct its day-to-day business effectively.

2017 will see some significant temporary upsets on Main Street, as the reconstruction of Main Street enters into its second phase. Businesses located on Main Street between 9th and 10th line will have to contend with major construction and hence interruption of normal traffic patterns.

It would appear there is cautious optimism about the Ontario economy so we hope Chamber Members will fare well with their enterprises as we embark on a new year, a new journey and new opportunities.

Executive Director
