Advocacy at the Chamber

The North Bay & District Chamber of Commerce represents our members and works as the voice of business to influence federal, provincial, and municipal legislation. Our network with Ontario Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce helps business on the tough issues that will negatively impact small businesses. While you may not personally have the time, NBDCC will use its resources and contacts to advocate on behalf of members.
