  • ACC Supports Joint Letter to Minister Freeland on Capital Gains ACC Supports Joint Letter to Minister Freeland on Capital Gains

    "In 2024, no economy is an island. The fight for talent and investment, on a global scale, is more intense that it has ever been. We’d all like to see government revenues climb to allow the government to be fiscally responsible while paying for the services Canadians expect.

    The path to fairness for all Canadians isn’t through a cycle of divisive tax-and-spend politics, but instead by fueling economic growth that improves Canada’s financial position, quality of life and affordability, instead of throttling Canadian success with new taxes that will limit opportunities and employment for Canadians.

    We’ve just signaled to the world that we intend to punish those who want to bet on Canada, giving everyone yet another reason to look the other way for places to invest, build companies, create jobs and provide economic opportunity."

    Jessica Brandon-Jepp, Senior Director, Fiscal and Financial Services Policy with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

  • End the Carbon Tax End the Carbon Tax


    The Atlantic Chamber of Commerce (ACC) is sending a message to Ottawa today that we do not support the carbon tax. "It is the wrong tool to fix a global problem," states CEO Rhonda Tulk-Lane.

    The ACC is calling on its 90 chamber members to send a letter to their MPs today.

    “Our region is facing a significant increase in the cost of living and doing business is getting harder,” said Rhonda Tulk-Lane, CEO of the Atlantic Chamber of Commerce. "Atlantic Canada simply cannot afford another tax increase. The federal government's carbon pricing model is failing us. Canada produces 1.5% of the world's carbon emissions. We are doing our share to help the environment and we will do more, taxing is punitive and is not the right path forward."

  • 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.
