Chamber Sets Eyes on 2014 Municipal Election

January 31, 2014 – Victoria, BC – The Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce is getting to work on the 2014 municipal election with its Our Vibrant Community campaign.

The Chamber continues to advocate for Our Vibrant Community policies which include keeping tax increases and spending within our means; building our quality of life and saving for the future; actively communicating municipal business in a clear and understandable fashion; and working individually and with regional stakeholders to deliver services in the most efficient and effective way.

In order to promote these policies, the Our Vibrant Community Committee will embrace more direct political involvement to advance these goals. The new activities will involve political research, policy development, candidate and campaign team training.

“The Chamber is excited about this campaign and is dedicated to ensuring that political reforms strengthen the local economy, improve the business climate and streamline government operations,” said Frank Bourrée, Chair of the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce. “We are proud of the work we have done to date, as well as being one of the first chambers in Canada to take on more direct political involvement.”

The Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce, with over 1,500 members, is the voice of business for the Greater Victoria region and has received Accreditation with Distinction from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
