National Day of Action in support of Canada’s resources sector on February 20, 2019

Your local Hinton Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of commerce are planning a national day of Action in support of the natural resource sectors

Over the past few months, we have seen a troubling increase in the divisions among Canadians. What began as intense but constructive discussions about getting Canada’s resources to global markets quickly descended into political squabbling among provinces and parties. There is a growing feeling among many Canadians, particularly in Western Canada, that Ottawa simply doesn’t care about them. This is much more than a regional issue or even just an economic issue. Left unchecked, these divisions threaten to tear our national fabric. National organizations like ours that advocate for local business have decided there is a need to act, which is why we are making our voices heard.


The Canadian Chamber of Commerce will be doing its part through two key activities in the next month:

  1. By leading a National Day of Action in support of Canada’s resources sector on February 20.
  2. By providing testimony to the Senate on proposed amendments to Bill C-69.

Our plan is to work together with all of Canada’s chambers of commerce and boards of trade to demonstrate widespread support from the business community to fix Bill C-69, make the regulatory changes promised in the Fall Economic Update and make plans to get our resources to tidewater as rapidly as possible.
