The Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce will be welcoming the Premier to Truro on January 16th, and a high-profile federal cabinet minister in early-February.

Premier Stephen McNeil will be the chamber’s first guest speaker of 2015, and President Stephanie Jones says seats are going fast. It is co-presented by RBC and RBC Dominion Securities.   She says the federal employment minister is on the guest list for February.

“Truro has a history of being a political town, and when you have high-profile leaders visiting, members of the business community want to be on hand to hear what they have to say and to offer some advice,” says Jones.

The Chamber’s Breakfast with the Premier takes place at the Holiday Inn on Prince Street.  The date is Friday, January 16th at 8:15 am.  And with 2015 expected to be a federal election year, the first of the big names in federal politics is also taking aim at Truro.

Employment Minister Jason Kenny will be speaking to the Truro & Colchester Chamber at a lunch-hour presentation on February 6th, which is also a Friday.

That event also takes place at the Holiday Inn, where Kenney is expected to respond to ongoing changes in immigration rules surrounding the Temporary Foreign Workers’ Program.

Seats for the breakfast and the luncheon are available at the Chamber of Commerce office in Truro at 895-6328.  You can also e-mail the Chamber’s events coordinator.  That address is [email protected]
