‚ÄčAdvocacy & Policy

Advocacy is a key part of what we do at the Central York Chamber of Commerce. As the voice of business in Newmarket and East Gwillimbury, our role involves identifying, researching and monitoring important issues affecting business growth and operations, as well as developing and supporting solutions that foster a positive business climate.

We work at all levels of government: directly with both the Town of Newmarket and the Regional Municipality of York and by coordinating efforts with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC), and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce at the provincial and federal levels. We are also part of the Chamber network which represents 200,000 businesses and is the largest and most influential business association in Canada.




The CY Chamber takes an active role in drafting policy, rather than simply criticizing it. In consultation with members, including our Advocacy Committee and Board of Directors, we develop positions and formulate campaigns around issues that have an impact on business and the local economy.
