On November 24, 2021, Chamber CEO Robert Godfrey and Policy and Communications Manager Sam MacPhail presented pre-budget recommendations for the Town of Stratford during a Committee of the Whole meeting, followed by submitting a letter detailing these recommendations.

In our recommendations we advocated for three specific things:

  • Invest in resources for business development and navigation
  • Enhance service delivery as it relates to economic growth, and
  • Transparent planning for tax rate increases.

The information presented was based on the collective feedback of the Stratford business focus groups, the Chamber membership, our board of directors, and the Chamber advocacy committee. We look forward to growing our reach within Stratford and working collaboratively with the Town Council.
