Advocacy

Throughout its history, the Guelph Chamber of Commerce has played an important role in bringing together business and community leaders to advocate at all levels of government for policies that further enhance the social and economic prosperity of our city.

The Guelph Chamber’s non-partisan advocacy efforts are reflective of the priorities of our membership and wider business community. With the help of our Advocacy Committee and our partners at the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, we’re continually looking to advance Guelph-Wellington as a leading destination to do business in Ontario, by advocating for public policy that positively impacts business and our community at large.

How do we do this? On your behalf, we:

  • Participate in task forces
  • Provide written submissions on policy priorities
  • Host roundtables with government stakeholders
  • Delegate to City Council
  • Convene town halls with elected officials
  • Survey our membership to establish priorities
  • Communicate regularly and work closely with our MP, MPP and Mayor

Keep up to date on what we’ve been advocating for by reading our updates below.
