Policy & Advocacy
The Ontario Chamber of Commerce is Ontario’s business advocate.
The OCC is Ontario’s largest, most inclusive, and credible business network.
We undertake research on Ontario’s most pressing policy issues from a business perspective. We propose and advocate for solutions that will foster the growth of Ontario businesses and lead to the creation of jobs in the province. Our work is based on the belief that strong businesses are the foundation of a prosperous Ontario.
The OCC’s policy work is evidence-based and driven by our members.
We are a respected voice among government decision-makers and our solutions-based advocacy sets us apart. Learn how you can become a part of this powerful network.

The OCC researches and develops policy positions that aim to make Ontario a more attractive place to invest and do business.
OCC members help shape our policies through the policy resolution process. At our Annual General Meeting (AGM) & Convention, members gather to debate and define the resolutions that inform advocacy efforts for the coming year. Out of this process comes a compendium of resolutions that form the basis of our advocacy work.
The OCC also leverages the expertise of its board of directors and its corporate and local chamber membership through its policy committee and taskforces to help shape our policy process.
