Testimonials:

“At the moment I am working as a summer student at the Innovation and Industry Engagement team at NSCC. One of my roles is making sure our team is aware of courses and webinars that can help small business during this hard time. Your events are always listed in the opportunities we recommend to people. It’s good to see how active the chamber is despite the challenges of becoming all online at a sudden.” –Gabriela Martins, Business Administration Student - NSCC, Research Analyst - Innovation & Industry Engagement - NSCC (Summer Co-Op)
