Policy resolutions are at the heart of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce (MCC) and reflect our mission to champion sustainable economic growth, leading to greater prosperity for businesses and communities in Manitoba. Every year, our membership of businesses, local Chambers of Commerce, and boards of trade develops policies that reflect the on-the-ground needs of Manitoba businesses. The focus of policy development falls under a number of key areas, including:

  • Economic competitiveness
  • Workforce
  • Rural economic development and Northern Manitoba
  • Tourism
  • Climate Change
  • Indigenous Issues & Reconciliation

The MCC’s bylaws require that any submitted resolutions be:

  • Provincial or national in character
  • Timely in importance
  • General in application to both economic and public well-being

The draft should be in the format of:

  • Preamble (background),
  • Resolution (what you want done)
  • Argument (why you are seeking that resolution)

All resolutions are brought to the attention of appropriate government officials and other bodies to which the various recommendations are directed. The method of presentation may vary by resolution due to a number of factors, including timing; subsequent events and legislation which may affect the subject matter; or additional information that may become available.

Throughout the year, members are kept informed of the action taken on each of these positions by way of summaries and reports in the MCC’s publications.
