The Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce initiated the first ever business walk done in Carleton Place. A “Business Walk” is a day dedicated to learning more about our local businesses through face-to-face interviews on our turf. Local leaders visit each business with the hopes of gathering the knowledge that we need to help our community and build working relationships between our decision makers and local businesses. It is also used to identify common themes for action that, if addressed, could better support and stimulate the economic activity in our area.

This campaign highlights the important contributions of small businesses to our economy and communities, and seeks to actively engage small businesses across the province in investigating the top barriers to small business growth - and identify solutions to overcome those challenges. To kick off this campaign the OCC has released the report, Top 3 Obstacles to Small Business Success.
The Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce looks forward to leading discussions in our community about the underlying challenges that are weighing on small businesses and stifling job creation.
A strong and vibrant small business sector is important for all business. Small businesses are the wealth creators, job creators and risk takers. Small businesses have important relationships with big businesses as part of the economic ecosystem. Big businesses are often highly dependent on small businesses as suppliers, distributors, customers, innovators, and for developing a skilled and experienced workforce to draw from. Small businesses also make up the vast majority of our local membership, our volunteers, and are often the people actively involved in community service.
We want to hear from you. Please engage with us on the Small Business Too Big To Ignore campaign on Facebook and Twitter, share your input, and help spread the message about the importance of small business and why it cannot be ignored.
If you are a member of the Chamber, please consider donating to the Fort McMurray Chamber of Commerce Relief Fund.
WHAT IS A CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND WHY BE A MEMBER?
A Chamber of Commerce is the vehicle that enables people to work together to improve business - to build a better community and to develop better citizenship in the community, the province and the nation. Although the local community is a market in which business compete for customers, the common intention of the business leaders is to grow and improve this common market. Their Chamber is the means through which they can work together to achieve this goal.
The Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce is a partner to the leaders of our community. The Chamber's heritage is impressive having been founded in January 1916. Our mandate is to foster a healthy business climate while promoting business in our town. Each year the list of accomplishments of the Chamber of Commerce grows longer and the list of ideas, plans, and visions even longer.
