For immediate release July 13, 2023
(Mississauga) – Together with our colleagues at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the Mississauga Board of Trade applauds the tentative agreement to end the strike at BC’s ports. While this labour disruption occurred on Canada’s west coast, its impacts were already being felt by businesses in Mississauga after just 13 days. It will now take weeks for the backlog of shipments to reach their intended destinations. We encourage our elected officials in Ottawa to identify additional measures to ensure labour stability in our critical infrastructure and supply chains going forward.
