Trade & Market Access Committee

Helping businesses in Edmonton by advocating on behalf of our members to positively influence decisions made by all levels of government.

Edmonton Chamber members that make up our Trade and Market Access task force work to identify opportunities for the Edmonton Chamber to advocate for improving intra-regional, inter-regional and international market access. They share their pooled expertise to determine means for enhancing the Edmonton region's trade capacity through new products, new industries, new processes and value added expansions of our rich, existing resource base. Once policy positions are established, they are submitted to appropriate levels of government for further review 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. During the review process, Trade and Market Access task force members are actively engaged in communicating the best outcomes for Edmonton Chamber members on specific policies going forward for debate.

This volunteer task force consists of a remarkable team of individuals that actively initiate positive change on behalf of business in Edmonton.
