News Releases


The Nova Scotia government has committed to creating an accessible province by 2030. It will take all of us working together to achieve this goal.

Our next step is to develop a strategy for how we will meet this goal. To do this, we are holding a series of public engagement sessions on what an accessible Nova Scotia looks like and the steps needed to get there.

Topics will include:

Accessibility issues;
How government should prioritize the development of standards;
How communities can contribute to accessibility; and
Any sector-specific considerations.

Nova Scotia has set the goal of becoming an accessible province by 2030. We want to know what accessibility means to Nova Scotians and how we can achieve it.

Join us and provide input on what an accessible Nova Scotia means to you.

Wednesday, May 23 6 pm – 8:30 pm NSCC Lunenburg Campus 75 High St., Bridgewater, NS

Chamber Mandate Press Release




In a recent letter to the Chamber Membership President, Bob Richards, announced that the Board of Directors have supported the formation and implementation of a membership polling process called, the Chamber Mandate.

Richards goes on to say, “The Chamber Mandate will be used to poll our Chamber Membership on various topics affecting the business community. It will assist the Board in formulating more informed positions and policies, which will reflect our Membership as a whole”.

“The Chamber has long been recognized as the voice of the business community in Bridgewater and Area. There have always been questions or concerns as to how accurate that voice truly represents our Membership. The Chamber Mandate will assist in making sure your voices are heard and accurately represented”.

The Chamber’s goal is to engage Members in ways that will inspire a progressive business climate and contribute to the steady economic growth of the South Shore. Members will contribute to the prosperity of the community as a whole through initiatives and events targeted to the business goals in the area.

Chamber Mandate emails will be sent out to the Membership asking for their input for topics of discussion, events and training opportunities, along with a chance for businesses to have their say on a wide range of things that have an impact on the business community. “It’s your Chamber, so have your say!”

If you would like more information on the new Chamber Mandate initiative, please contact the Chamber office at 902-543-4263 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
