For the past seven years the Canadian Chamber of Commerce has published the 10 Ways to Build a Canada that Wins (formerly the Top 10 Barriers to Canadian Competitiveness).
This report, which is read widely by decision-makers in government and elsewhere, articulates a series of clear priorities and objectives that, if addressed, will give Canada a competitive edge, improve productivity and grow the economy.
It is key that the 10 Ways to Build a Canada that Wins reflects the views of our members—businesses big and small throughout Canada—especially in an election year. That is why, this year, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Hill+Knowlton Strategies on this feedback exercise.
Please participate in this 5-to-10-minute confidential feedback survey.
By giving us your input, you will be:
- shaping the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s 2018 message to the federal government and other stakeholders, and
- telling chambers of commerce at the national, provincial, territorial and local levels about the priorities that are important to you, both as a Canadian and a business person.
The Oakville Chamber of Commerce and the Ontario Chamber Network are seeking grassroots data on the impact of Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, which amended the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act. How has the increase to the minimum wage, new scheduling provisions, expanded personal emergency leave, equal pay for equal work, and other changes impacted your business?
This information will be summarized in a document to be shared with the government in order to advise them on how to bring balance back to labour legislation in Ontario.
The Oakville Chamber is looking for specific, statistical information about the financial, legal, and administrative impacts of Bill 148 on your business since January 1, 2018. Your name or contact information will not be collected, and all data will be presented in aggregate.
To share how Bill 148 has impacted your business, please use this form.
Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
In light of the upcoming provincial election, the Ontario Chamber Network released their business election platform Vote Prosperity.
Please take this important 2 question survey on the Vote Prosperity platform.
Please find attached a survey from the Federal Government relating to feedback on the ongoing review of federal labour standards.
The main issues this survey addresses include vacation hours, break periods for meals, as well as newer concepts such as a “Right to Disconnect” (ie, be unavailable for work-related email or phone contact), and the various definitions of “Job Quality” related to employment.
We encourage you to take 5 minutes to complete this survey so that your views are shared with the federal government. More information can be found here.
