The Trade and Market Access Committee is primarily focused on policies that support the competitiveness of Edmonton’s economy, access to markets, and initiatives that reduce excess regulations and red tape.
The areas monitored by the Committee include, but are not limited to: transportation, logistics and trade, regulations, trade policies and negotiations.
Once policy positions are established, they are submitted to appropriate levels of government in order to vocalize member concerns and influence the impact of government decisions on business. Additionally, each year the Edmonton Chamber has the unique opportunity to submit policies for consideration and potential approval to both the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
This volunteer committee consists of a remarkable team of individuals that actively initiate positive change on behalf of business in Edmonton.
