Event Date Updated & Guest Speaker Added!
Calling all Members - we want to hear from you!
There is power in the network. Through regular touch points with our members and a robust annual schedule with our advocacy committee we keep our finger on the pulse, developing timely advocacy efforts that help elevate Whistler’s business.
Join the Whistler Chamber and Nancy Healey, Commissioner for Employers on June 9 for a roundtable discussion.
We know labour remains a challenge and this is a great opportunity for the government to hear from you directly. Commissioner Healy is responsible for representing the views and positions of employers on matters that relate to employment and social development programs. By consulting stakeholders, she is able to convey concerns regarding administration of legislation, policy development and program delivery.
During this interactive session, Commissioner Healey will give an overview of the EI program and initiatives to help employers with labour shortages. Plus, you'll have the chance to discuss what you are experiencing as an employer.
This is sure to be a great discussion so, reserve your seat at the table today!
