The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to launch the Canadian Business Resilience Network (CBRN) to help the business community prepare, persevere and, ultimately, prosper as we collectively face the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Even though it seems as if almost everything has changed in the last few weeks because of COVID-19, what has remained constant is the commitment of the Chamber to our community. We have been working hard to advocate for our business community before the pandemic, during the pandemic and we’ll be continuing that work after the pandemic,” stated Tracy Noullett, President of the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce.

Led by the Canadian Chamber, the CBRN is an inclusive campaign that focuses on mitigating the impact of the pandemic on our economy and our communities by helping the business community drive Canada’s economic recovery.

The CBRN aims to:

  • Provide tools and supports through a dedicated website,, to businesses in their business continuity efforts – from development to implementation.
  • Provide a consistent and reliable flow of accurate, up-to-date, authoritative information.
  • Work closely with government to ensure the right supports are in place and to be a conduit for information from the government to the private sector.
  • Instill confidence in Canadian business and the economy.

CBRN brings together over 450 chambers of commerce and boards of trade, along with over 100 of Canada’s leading business and industry associations, including the Business Council of Canada, the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, as well as the support of partners such as Canada Life.

“COVID 19 has provided us with an unprecedented challenge, but Canadians are resilient. The Canadian Business Resilience Network is about business and government stepping up together to make sure every Canadian business has the information it needs and a fighting chance to make it through,” said Jackie King, Chief Operating Officer, Canadian Chamber of Commerce.”

The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce has gathered information from all levels of government and a wide variety of resources to help businesses and the public on the COVID-19 page on the chamber website, and provided daily updates on the chamber blog, YouTube channel and social media platforms.

“In addition to the CBRN network, the Chamber has a seat on the local Economic Recovery Team, leveraging the value of partnerships and allowing us an even stronger voice for our business community,” further stated Noullett. “We know that it will take a sustained and collaborative effort to recover from the financial strain that we’ve endured but we know that, if given the support they need, our businesses and our community will use the resilience and hard work they’ve already shown to emerge stronger than ever.”
