Ontario Must Create the Right Conditions for Business Competitiveness

Soo Chamber of Commerce Chamber:

SAULT STE MARIE, ONTARIO  ~~~~~  April 20, 2022 (LSNews)  The COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis have created an unstable environment for Ontario’s businesses. Inflation, labour shortages, and supply chain backlogs have been exacerbated by the global state of emergency. This week, the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce (SSMCOC) joined the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) and Ontario’s Chamber network in releasing Vote Prosperity, outlining our policy priorities for the next four years.  Thunder Bay, Sault Ste Marie, Sudbury, Ontairo 

“Businesses continue to face a myriad of challenges on their road to recovery,” says SSMCOC President, Patricia Porco. “Balancing short-term needs with critical long-term investments will be key in supporting growth and predictability. This is a watershed moment for Ontario’s future economic prosperity, and we want to underscore the importance of continued collaboration between government and industry to get us to where we need to go.”

Business competitiveness results in more prosperous communities, higher consumer confidence, high-quality jobs, and a more resilient economy. This requires:

  • Boosting confidence and predictability
  • Implementing pro-growth policies
  • Building resilient communities
  • Supporting entrepreneurship and innovation

The recommendations outlined in OCC’s Vote Prosperity were developed together with businesses, associations, labour, post-secondary institutions, as well as chambers of commerce and boards of trade from across the province.

As the indispensable partner of business, we look forward to putting our members’ issues front and centre this election. To ensure the next provincial election advances business competitiveness, we have developed Vote Prosperity. Read the recommendations HERE.
