St. Thomas & District Chamber of Commerce
The Opportunities Canada Needs to Build the Next 150 Years of Business Success

Friday, February 17, 2017 - In this year of political and economic uncertainty, the St. Thomas & District Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, has identified Ten Ways to Build a Canada That Wins, a list of key opportunities Canada can seize right now to regain its competitiveness, improve its productivity and grow its economy.

"Our list outlines specific recommendations on what Canada can do better, and the opportunities to improve our economic success. Canada can't sit still while our competitors run laps around us. We need every advantage, and the Canadian Chamber will work with government to put these new measures in place," said the Hon. Perrin Beatty, President and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. "If we take advantage of these opportunities, we'll give our businesses new tools to ensure their growth and success."

In this fiercely competitive world, business needs more than its own skills to win - it also needs a supportive environment and public policies to encourage competitiveness. This new version of an annual Canadian Chamber report moves away from identifying self-inflicted wounds that have prevented Canada's economy from achieving its full potential and, instead, describes the opportunities for us to do better.

"From fighting protectionism to upgrading Canada's regulatory system or building a stronger Canadian brand abroad, each of these measures can have real and lasting effects on our economy," says Chamber President & CEO Bob Hammersley. "We've emphasized opportunities that touch Canada's internal economy, from reducing the cost of doing business to dismantling internal barriers to trade. What we need now is a commitment to get the job done."

Perrin Beatty went on to say "As we celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary, we can look back at the essential role business played in shaping our country. But as we look forward, it's clear we'll need every advantage to continue building a more prosperous country. These ten opportunities can provide a foundation for the next 150 years of Canadian business success."
