October 26-27, 2020 | Virtually | #CCCAGM20
Our AGM & Convention brings together over 320 chamber of commerce executives and community business leaders to discuss the economic and political issues that affect the prosperity of Canadian business. This event enables our member chambers to become more relevant and successful advocates for their communities. It is also THE opportunity for chambers of commerce to present their member businesses’ key concerns to our cross-country network. The resolutions adopted pave the way to foster a stronger economic environment for business and will be presented to the federal government and shape our public policy objectives for the upcoming year.
COVID-19 has affected all kinds of events and schedules. Like you, we have been assessing the feasibility of our events, including our AGM and Convention. Our top concerns are whether our members can safely get to the AGM and whether they can afford registration, travel and accommodation expenses.
Because of these concerns and the unknowns surrounding mass gatherings, we have decided to cancel our in-person AGM and Convention and hold a virtual event instead.
Policy Resolution Process Begins
Chambers and boards of trade are invited to submit their proposed resolutions using our online portal. We have also updated our Guide to Preparing a Resolution that contains helpful information for you, prior to making any submissions.
The deadline for submitting your resolutions is Tuesday, June 30, 2020. For any questions, please contact Rebecca Derry or Ian Faris.

Submit Proposed Resolutions
There will be no cost to attend, courtesy of the generous support of our event sponsors. Online registration for the event will open in early July. We hope this will lead to increased participation by chambers and boards of trade as well as multiple attendees.
The technology platforms and tools are still to be determined; more information will follow.
The theme of this year’s AGM and Convention will focus on recovery – the recovery of businesses and the recovery of chambers of commerce and boards of trade.
We are looking at offering:
- Keynote speech by the Government of Canada
