What’s so great about living here? The Chamber wants to know

The East Kawartha Chamber of Commerce proudly serves businesses in the Townships of Douro-Dummer, North Kawartha and Selwyn as well as the Municipality of Trent Lakes.

Last fall the Chamber completed a new Strategic Plan. One of the directions in that plan is to strengthen our role in the promotion of the region as a destination.

The Chamber is approaching this with the broadest definition of ‘destination’ – both the physical place as a destination as well as its website.

It also intends to focus on an inclusive market, not just the ‘true tourist.’ Seasonal residents and those in nearby communities, such as Peterborough, Bancroft and Lindsay, need to be aware of the services and products that the businesses in our region have to offer. As do local residents.

Did you know that this area is home to a restaurant that has enjoyed over 50 years in business and to some of the finest custom builders in the province and to Canada’s largest retail art gallery – just to name a few.

The Chamber has just launched a survey to gather data to help in planning for this strengthened role of promotion, and needs your help!

Please visit the website – – and complete the survey. It will take no more than 15 minutes of your time.

The survey will be open until noon on Friday, March 21.

The Chamber wants to hear about what you value about the community as well as what you consider when making purchasing decisions. The results are collected anonymously.

But don’t stop there! Invite your friends, family, colleagues, customers or clients from near and far to also complete the survey.

The Chamber wants to make sure it has a wide-ranging collection of impressions about this area. The information received will be used to develop the Chamber’s marketing and promotions strategy to support and strengthen local business.
