  • Reflections on the beginning of NAFTA negotiations
    Mid-August isn’t normally a busy time of the year. People have taken off on vacation or to long weekends at the cottage. Streets and offices are quieter than usual. Things slow down.

OCC Regulatory Update

The Ontario Chamber of Commerce’s (OCC) Regulatory Update summarizes what employers need to know about the latest changes to the regulatory environment for businesses.

We provide regulatory updates to the Chamber Network at three key times during the year to coincide with the government’s regulatory schedule. You will receive our next updates in December 2015 and June 2016.

This update is exclusive to members of the Chamber Network. We encourage you to share this information with your own members through your preferred communication channels (please include the *disclaimer at the bottom of this email if you do).

As you know, easing the regulatory burden for Ontario businesses is one of our top priorities. We are committed to continuing to advocate for a business climate that fosters investment and growth.

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
