Ontario Hansard - le 4 mars, 2015
Mrs. Marie-France Lalonde:Earlier this year, I was proud to be in attendance at the Orléans Chamber of Commerce’s 13th annual Business Excellence Awards. We had 13 key award winners who I have taken the time to congratulate individually. There were many wonderful finalists, and I want to express my gratitude to all local businesses for their hard work in our community.
Small businesses are the lifeblood of Orléans. I can say, as a former business owner, that the work that is done by the chamber of commerce in Orléans is extremely vital to foster entrepreneurship and economic growth in our communities.
I have to take this opportunity to wish all the best of success to the former executive director, Jamie Kwong, as she moves on to a new opportunity, and to welcome the new executive director, Mr. Dina Epale.
