Peterborough Chamber submits two policy resolutions for CCC AGM

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce (CCC) depends on the policy resolutions and recommendations from local chambers and boards of trade, such as Peterborough, to determine advocacy issues important to the business community. 

On the CCC website (chamber.ca), the policy process is described as culminating in a democratic vote on the floor of our annual general meeting (AGM). 

Following approval at the AGM, the CCC, along with our members, can move forward in our advocacy efforts based on the resolutions contained within our Policy Resolutions Books. Each resolution, once approved, has an effective lifespan of three years.

For consideration in 2016, the Peterborough Chamber has submitted the following:  

Advancing Canada's Competitiveness Using Shortline Rail

This resolution asks for capital investment tax incentives for shortline rail companies 

Restoring Canada's Innovative Competitiveness

This resolution asks the federal government to improve the SR&ED tax credits to encourage more private sector innovation

These policy resolutions will now be assessed by the CCC Policy Committees to see if they will be on the floor for debate at the Annual General Meeting in Regina, Saskatchewan in September.
