Stouffville Chamber – Works Hard For You

Your Chamber works very hard, on your behalf, to plead the case of business in support of various causes that will impact the businesses in the membership. We focus our efforts on this activity and have the strong support of the Canadian and Ontario Chambers of Commerce as resources. It is important for the Chamber to know how the Members feel about various issues or proposals that arise so we can have a strong and cohesive voice in developing the case to advocate.

We have developed a strategy to focus on those important issues, closest to home, that have your business as the primary beneficiary of any advocacy we conduct regarding business growth and operations at all levels of public policy.

We are committed to participating in the development of local and regional economic strategies and we advocate for increased investment and development of our business community.

Dignitaries

The Stouffville Chamber of Commerce is in direct contact with the Mayor, local Council, regional Council, MP and MPP as well as actively participates in a number of regional task-forces.

The primary purpose of these meeting is to gain a better understanding of the local and regional objectives for the Township of Whitchurch-Stouffville and to establish what role the Chamber can play in assisting in the economic development and promotion of Stouffville, as a great place in which to do business.
