Congratulations to our friends at the County of Brant, City of Brantford, and the Brantford Regional Real Estate Association for successful events sharing and celebrating the success of the business community last week. The Chamber was pleased to partner with BRREA in presenting Building Brantford and Brant County, and learning more about how residents and leaders feel about the opportunities ahead for our community.

The RogersTV/Chamber of Commerce municipal election debates are now online and can be viewed on our channel here.

Our Education Committee met this morning, and the general sense from most organizations is a relief to get back to a more standard school term, planning events and activities to get students out into the community. A special reminder and call out to employers in the skilled trades with welders. The Skills2Advance program is in need of more employer-sponsored positions. Please see the ad below and contact the Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie for more details on how to support, and benefit from, this great program.

Thank you for all of the nominations received for the Business Excellence Awards! Staff and the Committee meet this week to begin the extensive process of reviewing the nominations and planning for the event in May 2023.

Have a great week!
