    The 2019 Provincial Budget was released Monday and the BC Chamber has replied with the following press release:  http://www.bcchamber.org/advocacy-news/affordability-strategy-welcome-costs-smes-piling

     

    The Kimberley & District Chamber of Commerce President, Rachelle Langlois, responded: “The release of the 2019 BC Budget coincided nicely with the arrival of BC Chamber representatives in Kimberley Wednesday morning. Along with the member benefits presentation we had scheduled, our Chamber was able to hear about the BC Chamber’s thoughts and direction regarding the new budget.”

     

    “We are pleased with the support the BC Chamber is showing towards small and medium sized business owners who are the economic drivers in our small communities.  We were also encouraged by the participation of the Kimberley business community members, as having a strong Chamber will ensure we have the voice necessary to continue to have the ear of these influential policy makers.” 

     

    “Gathering feedback from the business community is one of our primary goals in the next few months, along with increasing our Chamber membership.  We want to hear from our businesses to ensure our Chamber is effectively representing their needs, not just on a local or community level, but also at regional and provincial levels as well since this budget will directly impact our members.”
