BUSINESS – Kamloops proposals approved by B.C. chamber

The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce was six for six at the B.C. Chamber’s annual conference this week in Victoria — delegates approved all Kamloops recommendations.

 

Each year, chambers of commerce from around B.C. meet to debate and vote on current business issues that are provincial and national in scope.

This year, 63 recommendations to government were presented by the local chambers over two days.  The six papers presented by the Kamloops were all approved and now become policies of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce.

Each approved policy will be published in a manual and presented to the provincial and federal governments.  The B.C. Chamber, along with the Kamloops Chamber, will also meet with officials to discuss the recommendations for potential adoption by their governments.

Topics of Kamloops’ recommendations to government:

  • RENOVATION TAX CREDITS – IMPROVING B.C.’S HOUSING STOCK
  • FINES AND PENALTY REFORM FOR BUSINESSES
  • CANADA-CHINA TRADE TARIFF GAP
  • FIRST NATIONS INFRASTRUCTURE INSTITUTION
  • INDIGENOUS LAND TITLE INITIATIVE
  • ENHANCING ACCESS TO THE REGISTERED DISABILITY SAVINGS PLAN FOR DISABLED EMPLOYEES

See www.kamloopschamber.ca/recommendations-to-government for the full documents.

 

“It was a pleasure to work with individual members who brought these issues forward to the chamber.  With their input, we were able to formulate solid arguments for each position paper and achieve approval from the provincial membership,” said Kamloops chamber president Paul Ross.
