Chambers from across the province joined the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC) in a full-day takeover of the legislature last week.
During this inaugural Day of Advocacy, chambers from Morden, Brandon, Neepawa, The Pas, Dauphin, Assiniboia, Portage la Prairie, Winnipeg, and Steinbach met with ministers and opposition leaders to share concerns, tackle issues, and open up possible areas for future work together.
Recommendations in areas of taxation, venture capital funding, and improving labour market information in the province highlighted MCCs agenda. Local chambers shared rural Manitoba’s growing business concerns including the length of time it takes to get hydro hookups, examining the rural planning act, and water issues affecting agriculture in the north.

The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce would like to thank our local chambers for their interest in the inaugural MCC Day of Advocacy, and express our sincere appreciation to elected officials who took part in the fruitful discussions.
