• Policy & Advocacy

  • The Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce Policy & Advocacy Committees mandate is to identify, monitor and respond to issues that have broad interest for our members and the business community. In addition, the committee will initiate advocacy for interests that are of strategic importance to our members.

    The Committee will develop policy for Board approval and/or advocate on issues as identified by the Board of Directors and members requesting support. The committee will identify key policies to be submitted to municipal government and or the BC Chamber to be brought forward at a provincial or federal level.

  •  Engage with the Chamber to advocate for you! 

    MUNICIPAL ADVOCACY:
    City Development Permitting Process
     
    THANK YOU to all members of our business community who reached out for advice and support that spurred on this request for feedback. The thoughtful responses and solution based recommendations  that your Advocacy Committee received are so appreciated and valued as we continue this conversation with our Municipal Government. We can ensure you that Mayor and Council, as well as the City staff, are focused on working to improve the overall process, efficiency and timelines around the permitting process. The conversation will continue...

     

    The City recognizes the value in improving communications and has issued another public notice on June 1st, 2018  and will be followed with regular communications and updates. 

     
    PROVINCIAL ADVOCACY:
    Are you concerned about the economical and safety impacts regarding the stretch of Highway 1 around Three Valley Gap? 
     
    We encourage our business community to support this advocacy effort by taking the time to write a letter directly to Premiere Horgan about 3VG; why  improvements are needed and how it has affected your business economically .
     
    The safety of this stretch of highway affects our community and visitors.
    The economics of this highway continuously being closed negatively affects our business community.
    Collectively, we can unite to help to make a difference.
