The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) membership, policy team, staff and board inform the organization’s advocacy efforts. With the overall goal of building a world renowned business environment, barriers to economic renewal and business competitiveness are identified, research conducted, policy developed and, then, the OCC’s advocacy work begins.
The OCC’s policy issues change over time in response to the evolving needs of our members and the broader business community in Ontario. As a result, the content of this page is edited frequently to reflect those changing needs. Visit this webpage often to stay up-to-date on OCC policy priorities and search our advocacy archive to find information on OCC’s past work.
More information on OCC advocacy efforts, can be found in our Policy Report Card.
As Ontario’s Business Advocate, the OCC supports policies, not parties. Rest-assured, whatever the issue at hand, the OCC remains solutions-focused and maintains its reputation for patient, but effective advocacy.
