In separate letters to MPP Bob Bailey and MP Marilyn Gladu last week, the Chamber shared its priorities for consideration in this year’s provincial and federal budgets.

At the provincial level, investment in high speed broadband, allowing small business owners’ children access to student loans and reducing the public sector’s total compensation premium were highlighted as key solutions to improving productivity and economic growth. The “oversized load corridor” project was also mentioned in the letter, available here as a key infrastructure project that would help create local jobs and boost our economy. The full pre-budget submission can be accessed here.

The Chamber advised MP Gladu to consider 10 ways to build Canada’s economy, as recommended by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in this report. Read the letter to MP Gladu here.
