Get your business moving again with TradeCert Canada

COVID-19 has been incredibly disruptive for Canadians, their families, businesses and communities.

Truth and Reconciliation Roadmap

The Canadian Chamber supports our members in building relationships that will help their businesses thrive and building relationships with groups that are often under-represented in business is not only the right thing to do, it’s critical to our national competitiveness and well-being.

Lumino Health: Why access to virtual health care is essential right now

Virtual care is not meant to replace the key role played by a family doctor. That one-to-one relationship is the foundation of primary health care in Canada. Virtual care provides immediate and convenient access to quality health care without crowded waiting rooms or physical distancing issues.

The demand is there. Pre-COVID-19, Canada Health Infoway surveyed Canadians about virtual care. Nearly two-thirds (64%) said they wanted to write to care providers through email. Nearly half of respondents (44%) said they would welcome a video visit. However, a recent Lumino Health survey showed that 55% of Canadians don’t know how to find virtual care.

The future of Canada lies in building Indigenous businesses and developing better relationships

This piece is written by Brenda LaRose, Board Diversity Practice Lead on the Canadian Chamber Board of Directors and Partner at Leaders International Executive Search.

Following the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, Canada’s businesses have suffered their greatest economic shock in living memory. For exporters and non-exporters alike, the global pandemic has upended revenue forecasts, demolished growth projections and slowed cash flows to a trickle. How we respond to this extraordinary and evolving situation will affect Canada and Canadian companies for years to come.
