Weyburn Chamber supports Sask. Chamber election points

In preparation for the upcoming Saskatchewan provincial election, the Weyburn Chamber of Commerce supports the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce (SCC)’s election policy pillars. The pillars align with following goals: to inform Chamber members of key issues of business for this election, to put business priorities in front of political parties, and to raise the profile of these issues in the public.

“Members of the Weyburn Chamber of Commerce are looking for support with respect to finding ways to recover from the current pandemic and we believe that the SCC has put together a solid plan around communicating that through these pillars,” commented Twila Walkeden, executive director of the Weyburn Chamber of Commerce.

The SCC’s Policy Pillars for the 2020 provincial election are centered around the theme of enabling business recovery and resiliency as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic slowdown.

In addition to viewing policy through the lens of business recovery and resiliency, the policy recommendations are also informed by key themes outlined in the SCC’s current Strategic Plan, along with specific actions identified in the Province’s Saskatchewan Growth Plan 2030. The policy recommendations are grouped under the following pillars:

1.Economic Recovery 

2.Financial Literacy 

3.Energy Efficiency and the Low Carbon Economy 

4.Labour Markets 

5.Trade Diversification and Supply Chain Resiliency 

6.Government Procurement 

7.Indigenous Engagement
