Calgary Chamber welcomes new federal ministers

Calgary, July 26, 2023 – The Calgary Chamber of Commerce welcomes and congratulates the new cabinet members sworn in today. The cabinet shuffle signals a continued focus on economic resilience and growth, and emphasizes the importance of affordability, housing and infrastructure. We are encouraged by the creation of a specific small business portfolio, and are pleased to see the continuity of several key ministers in economic and natural resources-related portfolios.

"We look forward to working with the new members of cabinet and extend our appreciation to those leaving their positions," says Deborah Yedlin, President and CEO of the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. "A renewed focus on economic growth, housing and small business is welcomed, particularly as we look ahead to building a resilient, diversified and low-carbon economy that ensures Canada is competitive on the global stage."

The Calgary Chamber is eager to continue working with the federal government on several key priorities, including:

As cabinet members take on new roles, we warmly invite ministers to visit Calgary to connect with our dynamic and diversified business community. We call on the federal government to prioritize fiscal responsibility, address the persistent labour shortage, and promote productivity and economic growth. The Calgary Chamber looks forward to continuing to collaborate with government to develop and implement policies that support the sustained growth of Canada’s business community, recognizing their critical role in the economy.
