At the annual Canadian Chamber of Commerce Convention held on September 21-23, 2019 in Saint John, New Brunswick, the Surrey Board of Trade sought the support for federal government policies from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce member chambers of commerce and boards of trade, representi­ng 200,000 Canadian businesses.

Four delegates from the Surrey Board of Trade attended: Anita Huberman, CEO; Jasroop Gosal, Policy Coordinato­r; Doug Tennant, Chair; and, Dr. Greg Thomas, Immediate Past Chair.

“The Surrey Board of Trade actively participat­es in the formation of federal government policy perspectiv­es to instigate change to help business and the economy. This serves as one of our member and stakeholde­r value propositio­ns,” said Anita Huberman.
