A true commitment by the chambers toward their members and partners, accreditation is a means of ensuring that accredited chambers play their role with credibility, according to well-defined rules, and act in accordance with a certain number of requirements.
In 2015 there were 16 accredited chambers.
Meetings with politicians
These meetings allow all party leaders to present their vision of the Québec and Canadian economy and share their views with our members. These discussions are open, straightforward, and constructive. Each year, ten or so meetings are organized.
The FCCQ is working to develop sustainable business relations with Canada and the United States. We believe that joint nitiatives involving business communities and governments are among the solutions to the many challenges resulting from market
globalization and border security.
Symposiums, Conferences, and Seminars
Throughout the year, many training and discussion opportunities are offered to our members, including forums of influence. They
are meant to be special occasions to discuss your concerns with decision makers.
