Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) play a vital role in the Canadian economy. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, they account for 64% of all private sector employment with more than 82% of total employment in health, construction, forestry, tourism and hospitality sectors.
The Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce is responding to the expanding population and economic growth in the Yukon by building capacity within the SME community, partnering with local experts to deliver seminars, workshops and courses for employers and employees, that support and encourage business growth and explore economic opportunities.
Our local business community contributes to the economic, civic and social well being of Whitehorse. Over the past few years, the Chamber and its partners have worked to keep the SME training and development programs current and each year, more than 140 businesses benefit from the program.
Chamber members take part in the workshops at only a fraction of the cost, thanks to funding from our partners - the Government of Yukon Department of Economic Development and the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency (CanNor).
2020/2021 WORKSHOP SCHEDULE WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON!
