CCGM's Future Link initiative

Got a small project that’s sitting on the back burner?

If you’re looking for some help to turbocharge that project in the new year, Future Link might be for you. Future Link works with students across New Brunswick and connects them with businesses that are looking for help on specific projects for a 2-week period. The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton is administering this program. They would love to speak with you if you have an interest in Future Link.

Reminder of Digital Adoption grant

As we start to close out 2022, we would like to remind members that funds are still available for the Canada Digital Adoption Grant. This $2,400 grant can be used for activities relating to:

  • getting online
  • increasing sales
  • adopting security software
  • connecting with customers
