For many years I have started my day with “The Gratitude Process” and I want to share my experience with you. Gratitude is so powerful that it can actually change your life. If you follow this process, you will see remarkable results in your daily life.

The Ontario Chamber Network has significant reservations about the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan Act, 2014 (Bill 56), which will impose new costs on employers.

We are broadly supportive of the spirit of the Pooled Registered Pension Plans Act, 2014 (Bill 57), which could provide businesses with a voluntary retirement savings tool. We will provide additional information t... Read More »

Chamber to Introduce New Paperless Billing

Beginning with the February Membership renewals, members will receive their invoices via email. This new process provides an electronic copy for easy filing in office computer systems. The invoice will also have a print option for members wishing to retain hard copies. This is similar to the paperless process used by most utility and service companies. In addition, this new system will provide the option to pay invoices on-line by credit card.
