Your Advocate

We Have Your Back!

On your behalf we take political action by identifying priorities and developing policy with input from our members. The Chamber maintains open discussions with local City Councilors and staff, MPs and MPPs, advocating on issues that increase commerce and economic develpment in Quinte West.

We bring people together to address an issue, problem, or opportunity. We enjoy being at the table for our local businesses, invite the guests and set the table for the tough conversations that need to happen to make the right choices.
