One of the highlights of our role as the voice of business in Manitoba is to actually get out of the office and see what is happening across our great province.
Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC) President and CEO Chuck Davidson spent much of last week touring the province and meeting with business owners about the challenges they are facing and the successes they are having. In Brandon, MCC along with the Brandon Chamber of Commerce met with the Sneath Group (featured in the most recent spring MBiz magazine) who are playing a leadership role in reinvigorating downtown Brandon. In addition, Davidson met with Christie’s Office Supplies, whose business was destroyed by fire earlier this year but is back on their feet in a temporary location. MCC also met with and toured Elite Safety Group, Greenstone Structural Solutions, and Chemtrade.
In Steinbach, MCC attended the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Breakfast with Hon. Blaine Pederson, Minister of Growth Enterprise and Trade and Education Minister Hon. Kelvin Goertzen before touring the Mennonite Heritage Village Museum, Nature’s Farm, and last year’s MCC Business of the Year Award Winner Steinbach Credit Union.
