Key Issues

The Campbell River Chamber of Commerce is constantly on the lookout for projects and policy changes that can influence the way that business and community growth occurs in Campbell River. Because the chamber recognizes that staying current with key issues in both the local and provincial community will help its members, it is constantly trying to keep up to date with the rapidly changing business market both locally and provincially.

Four key issues of concern for the chamber are outlined below: 

1. Think Local - Creating a positive businesses environment
 - The focus of the Campbell River Chamber's Think Local campaign is to strengthen the local economy through building and supporting a positive business climate. This will be achieved by increased awareness within Campbell River's local communities about the economic, social and business benefits in promoting and retaining our local businesses and profiling what makes Campbell River a great place to do business. Click here for more information.

2. Policy on Sustainable Forest Industry - Most recently, the Campbell River Chamber developed a policy on The Creation of a Sustainable and Prosperous Forestry Industry that was voted on and approved by all Chambers represented at the BC Chamber AGM. You can view the policy by

3. Major Projects Portal - The Chamber created the Major Projects Portal as a way to connect local suppliers and workers with prime contractors seeking services and supplies for their major projects in the Campbell River area.  The Major Projects Portal is a proven success in the John Hart Generating Station replacement project. This project has utilized the most local resources ever used in BC Hydro history in a single project.

4. Accessing a skilled workforce to meet your needs - The Campbell River Chamber recognizes small businesses are looking at HR strategies to hire locally, but considering international talent and accessing new-comers in the community is one of many strategies that can provide opportunities to access the skilled workforce you are going to need. The Chamber has developed this project website to support and empower local employers and businesses to build their HR capacity by providing employer focused tools and resources to tap into BC’s skilled immigrant talent.
