ACCC & CFIB Update on infrastructure

In our continuation to make Albert County’s infrastructure challenges and priorities top of mind, our ACCC board of directors has been in communication with the Canadian Federation Of Independent Business. They have been advocating for a broad range of construction mitigation policies, including direct financial support, both at the provincial and municipal levels of government since the release of their 2018 report “Paving a Smoother Road – Helping Small Businesses Survive Infrastructure Work”. They do appreciate continued awareness of Albert County’s road issues and will be sure to share our recommendations with the newly elected council as they are sworn in.
