The Edmonton business community has a lot to be optimistic about, including a more diversified economy, a more inclusive workforce, and a shared vision to move forward with. However, key challenges still arise when community voices aren’t given the opportunity to be heard. Each month, we host an opportunity for you to engage with a City Councillor in candid conversation and pose questions on topics that matter to you.

In September, we hosted Council Connect with City Councillor, Keren Tang Ward Karhiio. We want to thank Zaika, a member of the Chamber, for their great hospitality and our event partner, Sifarish for helping us create a meaningful and impactful event!
