    Business Development

    Problem: The province’s first large P3 project partners experienced difficulties generating an active and comprehensive list of potential local businesses to meet short-listed proponent teams.


    Chamber Solution: We created a list of local businesses who could utilize the local opportunities the project provided and sent out invitations to them —allowing the company to prioritize its outreach and leverage our relationships.
