Vote Prosperity

In October, the OCC released Vote Prosperity, our platform for the 2018 provincial election on June 7. The release of a platform nine months prior to the election was intended to ensure all parties have an opportunity to address the most important issues to business within their own platforms.

We are encouraging Ontarians to send a letter to their local candidates asking them to support the Ontario Chamber Network’s Vote Prosperity message.
