AVCOC gets big win at Canadian Chamber of Commerce AGM

Oct 3, 2017 -- Bill Collette

The Alberni Valley Chamber of Commerce presented its Policy Recommendation to the National Network of Chambers of Commerce in front of 400 Chambers representing more than 200000 Canadian Businesses. The Policy surrounded the need for Canada to re-invest in the Asia Pacific Gateway Canada Initiative so as to ensure that Canada remains a destination of choice for International Shipments. Of particular interest to AVCOC and its supporting Chambers accross Vancouver Island is the Port Alberni Transshipment Hub project. 


Our policy was amended to suit the desires of other areas in the Country however the meat behind it remained. The policy eventually passed with a 90% support level.
