With a history dating back to 1891 and as the largest bilingual Chamber of Commerce in Atlantic Canada, the Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce has an influential and respected voice in the community and province. This foundation places us in an ideal position to effectively advocate for our members and the business environment as a whole. Relying on the breadth and depth of experience and expertise of our extensive network of business and community leaders, we work with all three levels of government, various economic development entities and other partners to ensure that the voice of business is heard at a local, regional and national level.
The Greater Moncton Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and Advocacy Committee establish the priority issues the Chamber monitors and speaks out on. Some of the issues we have closely monitored include:
- Shale Gas exploration in New Brunswick
- Population growth and immigration
- Government regulations and reducing red tape
- Public-private partnerships
- State of the provincial economy and reducing taxes on businesses
- Continued economic growth of the Greater Moncton region
- Environmental sustainability initiatives for businesses and the community
We encourage all of our members to become active with the advocacy efforts of the Chamber. Our advocacy efforts are directed by the feedback we receive from our members. We encourage you to submit your advocacy concern through our online portal, by clicking here.
