Niagara Networks 2019 at Fallsview Casino

Thank you for joining us at the annual Niagara Networks at Fallsview Casino on Wednesday, September 18. We were thrilled at how many businesses and members were there creating connections.

We were honoured to have the opportunity to sit down with the Honourable Ross Romano, Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities, before the event, to discuss ways the province can remove redtape for businesses and address the labour shortage. The Minister addressed the crowd as well, thanking the hard-working businesses for their many contributions to our economy and to the success of our Province.

The venue was beautiful and we can’t thank our hosts, the South Niagara Chambers, enough for arranging this event! We look forward to next year already!

A huge thank you to 50 Point Market staff for the BBQ, and for allowing us to explore and learn more about the store.

The May 2 Networking Breakfast at Panorama Restaurant & Wine Bar was extremely well attended. More than 50 people joined us for breakfast and an update on the Save WLMH initiative. Thank you to the Save WLMH Community Action Group for all their efforts behind the scenes to save our hospital!

Unfortunately, Mother Nature decided to serve up some fog, so we couldn’t enjoy the view, but the engaged and animated crowd was certainly the main attraction!

Thank you to the staff at Panorama for hosting us so early in the morning, and tremendous thanks to Village Studio for the capturing some highlight moments from the event!

April 11 Lunch ‘n’ Learn – Workplace Safety & Prevention Services

We are extremely excited to launch a series of workshops, tailored specifically to our small business members!

April 11 marked our inaugural lunch ‘n’ learn, and featured an engaging presentation and discussion from Debbie Glen, the local expert from Workplace Safety & Prevention Services (WSPS). As Debbie pointed out, health and safety is not just about obeying the law and being socially responsible, it makes good business sense, too.

Debbie provided an introduction to WSPS’s Small Business Health and Safety Centre: learning to navigate the Roadmap to Safety, and understanding  the various roles and responsibilities people in the workplace have, according to the Occupational Health and Safety Act. She also demonstrated how easily accessible WSPS’s complimentary Health and Safety resources and tools are, and how to stay on track with a sample safety checklist. If you have questions about Health & Safety in YOUR workplace, please reach out to us; we’d be happy to put you in touch with WSPS.

Thank you to one of our small business members, 50 Point Market, for catering the workshop.
