Strategic Plan

The Halifax Chamber of Commerce conducts all operations under the guidance of its Strategic Plan. Every five years, a comprehensive strategic planning process is undertaken to ensure that members’ views are reflected in all aspects of Chamber operations.

In June 2013, the Board of Directors approved the following aspirational statement:

The Halifax Chamber of Commerce is committed to enhancing the prosperity of its members and to realizing Halifax’s potential to be among the top 3 highest growth city economies in Canada by 2018.

This shall be achieved by focusing on three key goals:

  1. To create a positive business environment to be reflected by being among the top 3 highest growth city economies in Canada by 2018
  2. To increase the skilled workforce by 20% from 2012 to 2018
  3. To accelerate prosperity of Chamber members by providing first class networking events, benefit programs, advocacy to governments, education, information and by making connections.

Working towards these goals, we will be better able to focus on initiatives that will directly help member businesses grow, move into new markets, and attract and retain talent – all helping create a city that is vibrant, competitive. and open for business.
