Municipal and Provincial Government Advocacy
The SSCC is connected with municipal and provincial government in the Bruce County region. We develop and maintain positive relationships with senior officials and key decision makers in the region, and then we leverage these relationships for strategic policy development and advocacy for business development. This is time consuming, but is incredibly valuable.
Networking and Connecting
We regularly host networking events including Business After Hours, Coffee & Conversation, Networking & Referral Group and more. We also plan and organize several economic development events as well as community and tourist events throughout the year. Aside from being fun, these events give you the opportunity to meet with the SSCC board of directors and other members, share ideas, and in some cases, make referrals to each other. Sponsorship opportunities are available for these events and are an excellent way to show support for your community.
Our members become part of our organization and have access to tools to help do business. We offer access to First Data Point of Sales systems, UPS and Purolator Shipping services, Esso Fleet cards, and the Chamber's Plan Health & Dental program. You'll rest better knowing you're getting the lowest rates available so you have more money to invest back into your business.
We value the expertise found within our membership so we encourage you to get involved. Chamber committees are an excellent way to help shape the direction and growth of your Chamber and your community.
Advertisement and Marketing
Allow the Chamber of Commerce to become a part of your marketing plan. Included with your membership is a listing in our Member Directory, located on our website and in print. Our print publication, the 'Live and Work Guide', is a valuable booklet that lists our Member businesses. This booklet can be found in various outlets throughout the region, is used by the Town of Saugeen Shores to attract new businesses, and is distributed to new residents and investors in the region.
