Our Policy Resolutions

Our policy resolutions are based on issues that are either of provincial or national importance and are submitted for debate during the annual general meetings of the Ontario or Canadian chambers of commerce.  If approved by the delegates at those conventions, they become the official policy of the Ontario or Canadian chamber who then lobby for them with senior levels of government.
