Canadian Chamber supports the ‘Faster, Together’ campaign


Ottawa – May 27, 2021 – Today the Canadian Chamber of Commerce is supporting the launch of the national vaccine confidence initiative, “Faster, Together.” The campaign explains that getting vaccinated can bring us back together, faster.

“The message is simple: the faster we all do our part and get vaccinated, the faster we can all get back together, and get our lives and businesses back to normal,” said Canadian Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, Perrin Beatty. “This single, unifying message is crucial for all Canadians to hear and heed.”

The Faster, Together. initiative is made up of more than 100 organizations, including business associations, labour unions, entertainment groups, influential individuals, and national brands. The initiative is co-chaired by Bruce Anderson (Abacus Data, spark* Advocacy) and Hassan Yusseff (Canadian Labour Congress) and has been built on a volunteer basis with the goal of fast-tracking Canada’s recovery from COVID-19.

Faster, Together. has created a warehouse of free creative assets that partner organizations can access to help support vaccine confidence among their staff, colleagues, friends, and communities. Information becoming a partner is available on the campaign website, FasterTogether.ca.

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce continues to support Canada’s recovery from COVID-19 in many ways, including our ongoing Business-Led Recovery campaign, government advocacy, the COVID-19 Recovery leadership Council, and more.

“The business community is eager to help assure Canadians that vaccines are safe and effective. We’ll all get to the finish line faster by working together,” concluded Beatty.
