The Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce is one of the largest Chambers of Commerce in Canada and as such we have a powerful voice to lobby all levels of government for change that benefits business in Waterloo Region. Physician Recruitment is also one of the Chamber’s most important initiatives in order to have a happy and helping community for everyone which in turn benefits the business community.
For over a decade the Chamber has recognized that family physician recruitment is critical to meeting the primary health care needs of our rapidly growing population. Lack of access to family practitioners is not only a serious community health care issue impacting our citizens, it is also an economic development issue impacting our business community.
The Chamber, through several policy committees, develops economic, politicial and social policies that affect the economic environment and quality of life in the greater Kitchener Waterloo area. Advocacy issues at the Chamber are very much a result of issues and challenges facing our members and are led by our volunteers are supported and guided by our board of directors.
