The Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) is undertaking a project on Mental Health and Addictions ‘Echo Pandemic’.
See the news release here.
Building off consultations with chambers and boards of trade around the province, the OCC is requesting our members’ feedback on three specific areas:
- Awareness of existing mental health supports in the community.
- Tangible recommendations from members to address the crisis.
- Industry/business-specific mental health impacts.
Your response will help the OCC prepare a policy brief with recommendations for government and industry. The target for release is mid-October 2023. If you wish to add your comments, please click this Google Sheet form. Responses are due no later than the end of the day on Friday, September 15, 2023. Instructions to fill out the form are included in the document. Please also note that this is an open document, so members from different chambers or boards of trade can edit simultaneously in real time.
IMPORTANT: Businesses can see each other’s responses should there be any privacy concerns. The Ontario Chamber of Commerce thanks you for any insights/comments you can provide.
