Policy and Advocacy
“Strong foundations, high aspirations.
Every year, our members—made up of corporate members, local chambers, and boards of trade—develop policies that reflect the needs of B.C. businesses.
Through our grassroots policy process our membership endorses approximately 70 new policies every year at our Annual General Meeting. The breadth and diversity of our policies reflects our broad-based membership—in any given year we have policy recommendations for almost all B.C.’s provincial government ministries.
These recommendations serve as our road map—once approved our policies are ‘on the books’ for three years. They inform our pan-provincial advocacy efforts and the advocacy efforts of local chambers for regional-specific issues.”
