BENEFITS, RESOURCE, ADVOCACY, NETWORKING & PARTNERS
The Chamber accomplishes collectively what no business can do alone. The Chamber’s primary role is advocacy. It represents its membership on issues affecting business and the community including the provincial, federal and municipal budgets, economic development issues, infrastructure and transportation issues, and other areas that affect the members’ ability to grow and prosper.
The Chamber provides a variety of benefits to its members through the Affinity Programs as well as Member-to-Member promotions. These tools include access to the Canadian Chamber Group Insurance Plan, attractive credit and debit card discounts through First Data and a variety of opportunities to promote one’s business.
Resource is another key service provided by the Chamber. For our membership and the public at large, we are seen as a hub for resources and an ambassador of the community. We are the conduit for information to keep the public up to date or promote community interest events and news.
The Chamber is also committed to providing networking opportunities for its members to enable them to grow their businesses by making valuable contacts with other members of the business community. People do business with people.
The DDCC partners with various organizations to organize community events and fund projects, including, but not limited to: Dauphin Neighbourhood Renewal, Dauphin Economic Development & Tourism, the Rotary Club of Dauphin, and Community Futures Parkland.
