The Chamber recently completed our Business Survey of the top 3 challenges businesses were facing in 2020. The results of the survey (which closed pre-COVID-19) indicated the top 3 challenges were:

  1. Labour Shortages (recruiting & retention)
  2. Marketing & Promotion
  3. Revenue Shortfalls

We are asking our members and the business community to re-visit their top 3 challenges in light of the new business models we are facing in today’s world.

As your Voice of Business we want to ensure we are advocating and affecting change in the areas the business community has identified as being the most important.

Results and actions plans will be shared in the latter part of September.

Here at the Chamber, we continue to work with an ever-growing number of public stakeholder organizations, including the BC Chamber and Canadian Chamber, to advocate for accessible business supports. Business supports for today, and equally important, business supports as we continue to re-purpose and rebuild.

We recognize the challenges that lay before our business members and community.

In addition, we are collaborating information and resources under one central website location to provide you with a one-stop shop for business, personal and community resources. Please click on the link or image above for the most current updates and support resources. We also encourage you to sign up for the Covid-19 Update E-Newsletter to receive further information on a timely basis.

As your Chamber of Commerce partner, we continue to advocate on behalf of our members and the business community.

To ask questions or share information we invite you to contact our Executive Director, Carolyn Rennie at 250 832-6247 or  Let us know how we can help.
