  • Influencing an Environment Where Business in Atlantic Canada Succeeds

  • Positively influencing policy development and advocating on behalf of the needs of business is one of ACC’s primary priorities. ACC is committed to supporting a strong, vibrant and growing Atlantic Canada and we want to positively impact meaningful policy development and advocacy that drives growth and prosperity in the region.

    Representing a broad range of community life in Atlantic Canada, the Chamber is uniquely equipped to develop policies that accurately reflect the views of community and business leaders in the interest of society.

    Steadfast in the goal to positively impact the Atlantic Canadian business environment through policy development and advocacy on regional and province-specific issues, ACC will continue building credibility of the Chamber network in Atlantic Canada by:

    • advancing top priorities for business in the Atlantic region through the identification of issues, the development of policy positions, and advocacy;

    • advocating for business policies that create wealth and grow our economy through ongoing discussions and feedback received from members of the Board of Directors, Provincial Advisory Committees, local chambers and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce;

    • bringing provincial issues to the forefront through effective and efficient provincial advisory committees in each Atlantic province;

    • building our research capacity to support policy development through investment in a longer-term staffing plan and collaboration with other regional and provincial stakeholder groups and associations with similar interests; and‚Äč

    • fostering and growing relationships with members, governments, the media and other key stakeholders to support advocacy.
