The Greater Sudbury Chamber of Commerce has a long history of hosting forums for candidates for political office to share their platforms and positions, specifically on issues related to the business community and how to improve the economic viability of our area. 

The chamber will continue the tradition this year and invites the community to election events in the Sudbury and Nickel Belt ridings ahead of the Oct. 21 federal election. 

The Sudbury Riding event will take place Oct. 9 from 7-9:30 p.m. at Collège Boréal. 

The Nickel Belt Riding event will take place Oct. 10 from 7-9:30 p.m. at Confederation Secondary School. 

“In the interest of hosting a productive election event, the chamber will be inviting only those federal candidates whose parties currently hold a seat in the House of Commons,” the chamber said in a release. 

“There will be an opportunity for candidates to answer questions on matters of importance to Greater Sudbury’s business community, along with an opportunity for the audience to submit written questions to the candidates both prior to and during the event.”

Audience members can submit questions to the chamber before the event at or via Twitter at @SudburyCofC. 

Both election events are free and open to the public. Chamber members and the public can find more information about the Sudbury event here and the Nickel Belt event here.
