  • ACC Stands with the Canadian Chamber's Statement Regarding the Tabling of Capital Gains Legislation ACC Stands with the Canadian Chamber's Statement Regarding the Tabling of Capital Gains Legislation

      This tax increase is the latest in a series of new taxes and red tape that build uncertainty, stifle investment and signal to the world to do business elsewhere. Our tax system has become a complicated, politicized web of carve-outs and caveats. We need to end our reliance on tax-and-spend politics, which is undermining innovation   and growth, and undercutting future generations. Canada needs a simple, fair and principled tax system that works in the best interests   of Canadians. Which is why we are urging all political parties to commit to a comprehensive, independent review of Canada’s tax system. While these capital gains increases continue to be defended as a matter of generational fairness, generational fairness should consider the actions we are taking today at the expense of our future prosperity and economic opportunity

  • Business Truth & Reconciliation Business Truth & Reconciliation

    The Atlantic Chamber of Commerce is taking proactive steps to promote reconciliation and respect for Indigenous rights within the corporate sector. In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's Call to Action 92, the Chamber urges its members to embrace the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a guiding framework. This entails a commitment to meaningful consultation, fostering respectful relationships, and obtaining the free, prior, and informed consent of Indigenous peoples before embarking on economic projects. Moreover, the Chamber advocates for equitable access to employment, training, and educational opportunities for Indigenous communities, ensuring they reap sustainable benefits from economic development initiatives.

     

    Recognizing the importance of education, the Chamber encourages businesses to provide comprehensive training for management and staff on the history of Indigenous peoples, including the legacy of residential schools, Indigenous rights, and Aboriginal-Crown relations. Emphasizing intercultural competency, conflict resolution, and anti-racism, these efforts aim to foster a more inclusive and harmonious corporate environment rooted in mutual understanding and respect.
