One of the main mandates for the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce is to foster a pro-business attitude at all three levels of Government with strong credible lobbying on your behalf.   The one page report below touches upon some of the highlights from 2015.  

The Peterborough Chamber was very active in 2015 at the municipal level we successfully lobbied, along with our Kawartha Manufacturers’ Association and the Peterborough-Kawarthas Association of Realtors, to have the Tax Ratio Reduction Program re-instated with a commitment to see it through to completion in 2021. 

At the provincial and federal levels, we lead the way for the Chamber Network to approve a recommendation of support for the Energy East pipeline.  A project that will bring 250 jobs to Peterborough’s GE Hitachi plant.  

In 2016, we will be releasing a number of position papers with the Ontario Chamber, the 2015 Peterborough Chamber Annual Report Card and are aiming to bring forward policy resolutions to the provincial and federal policy meetings. 

The Chamber values your input on business issues.  If you have a regulatory and/or legislative issue please contact
