The next federal election is on October 21, 2019 and our role as a Chamber of Commerce is to ensure that the concerns of the businesses are front and foremost.  As a service to our members, we have invited all registered candidates in the South Okanagan - West Kootenay riding, to come speak to our membership, and any other attendees who are interested.

This year, we are focusing on the Canadian Chamber’s ‘Vote Prosperity’ platform – prosperity for businesses in Penticton, in BC and in Canada.  Vote Prosperity reflects the priorities and concerns of job creators by laying out seven priorities, along with a series of specific measures to attract investment in Canada.

The session will start with a round of ‘speed dating’ where individual candidates will move from table to table in timed intervals to introduce themselves, then hear and respond to any burning issues. This will be followed by a more formal panel session, where questions and answers will be shared with the audience as a whole. 

The Penticton Chamber is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse any specific political candidates or parties.
