Welcome to the Scugog Chamber of Commerce

Together for Business


The Scugog Chamber of Commerce has reached out to the Candidates running in the upcoming election. We have asked them to participate in a televised event, where they can express their platform, and give their response to questions the Chamber feels are representative of our business community.

The event is airing today on Rogers TV, the Chamber’s YouTube channel, and is accessible from the Chamber website.

The Candidates that participated are:

Sarah Gabrielle Baron – Independent
Chris Cameron – New Democratic Party of Canada
Patricia Conlin – People’s Party of Canada
Jonathan Giancroce – Liberal Party of Canada

As Erin O’Toole – Conservative Party of Canada, could not be part of the event due to scheduling conflicts, a summary video was included. The Green Party of Canada did not have a Candidate.

Even though our offices are closed to ‘in person’ meetings, we are still providing employment services in Scugog, Brock, and Uxbridge and would be happy to support businesses in the community however we can.

Staff continue to interact with job seekers and businesses through phone, email, texting and video conferencing. We can support businesses in finding suitable staff to fulfill vacancies as the need arises through our free job posting service.

Our Provincially funded program is also available to help offset the cost of training a new staff member with the Job Matching and Placement Incentive. This is a dollar figure reimbursed to employers for a potential of 4-8 weeks, while new staff transition through the training period. If you are receiving resumes and would like to know if you are eligible for any funding please contact us.

There is also support through the Canada Ontario Job Grant, for those businesses that would like to investigate training for staff. This means that eligible businesses could receive direct financial support for purchasing training for their staff and be reimbursed for up to 83% of the cost of a course.

If you have any questions please give me a call or send an email. Stay healthy,

Danielle
