The Oakville Chamber of Commerce congratulates both Pam Damoff and John Oliver on being elected and looks forward to working with both of our new MPs on key issues such as the shortage of skilled workers, investment in infrastructure and developing a manufacturing strategy focused on global competitiveness. Making these policies a priority will create an environment that will encourage business and economic growth.
John Sawyer, President of the Oakville Chamber said: “We have had the opportunity to work with Pam and John in the past and I want to congratulate them on their successful campaigns. The Chamber and the businesses we represent look forward to working with John and Pam to put in place a context wherein local businesses can thrive and grow”.
“Our chamber also extends its congratulations to Prime Minister-designate Justin Trudeau and the Liberal team on winning a majority government. Having a stable majority government will permit the Liberal team to put in place a strong plan to promote Canada’s competitiveness. During the campaign, the Liberals set out their vision for our economy. Their plan to invest in new infrastructure, done strategically, will be positive for Canada’s economy. New transportation infrastructure will increase access to markets for Canadian businesses of all sizes.”
Having just returned from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) this past weekend Mr. Sawyer emphasizes that the Oakville Chamber is confident that there is common ground to be found with the new government from the resolutions passed at the AGM that will help grow the economy.
Canadian Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Hon. Perrin Beatty concurred: “When I looked across the room at our AGM over the weekend, I saw hundreds of chambers like the Oakville Chamber, collectively representing over 200,000 businesses, all working together to make our economy stronger. The will to work together with other chambers across Canada is strong. We all welcome the prospect of working with the government on building a stronger, more competitive Canada; a Canada that wins.”
