Local delegation headed to Queen's Park to highlight Sarnia-Lambton

Several local business owners will be showcasing their products and services to MPPs at Queen's Park.

The Sarnia-Lambton Chamber of Commerce is taking a delegation representing various industries from small business to large corporations, healthcare and housing to meet with key government officials on Monday and Tuesday.

McEacheran said the last time the Chamber of Commerce took down a local delegation was in 2015.

She said it's hoped that by engaging directly with ministers and staff, they hope to strengthen their relationship with the government and open the doors for collaboration.

"Sarnia-Lambton is already on the map, but to really, really push that we're still here and we've got some amazing things happening here," said McEacheran. "And with those amazing things happening, you know there's always some challenges that come up that are unique to our businesses here. To bring up some ideas that some of the delegates might have and just really highlight what's happening here in our community."

The local chamber is also hosting an MPP reception where a few local businesses will be showing off their made in Lambton products.

"We have the people from Top Shelf Canada who just won a big national award, they're coming down with us and they're going to be giving out some of their hot sauce," said McEacheran. "Nikki from WICK + Bear is joining us with her candles, we have Munro Honey coming with some of their honey and mead and Black Gold Brewery coming down and handing out some of their great beer."

McEacheran said the delegation is scheduled to meet with several ministers from various portfolios, including economic development, housing and energy.
