Twenty members of the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce met on Zoom yesterday afternoon with the President of Manitoba Chambers Chuck Davidson.  Davidson reported he continues to advocate on behalf of local Chambers by holding virtual meetings with them and passing their information on during meetings with a variety of government ministers such as convincing them to drop the essentials only list in the north to re-open businesses while COVID numbers were high only in eastern part of the region and pushing to split the northern health region along highway six for restrictions.

The Flin Flon & District Chamber of Commerce is standing against the continued Code Red restrictions imposed on ALL communities in the Northern Region announced January 19th. We are adding our voice to the calls for change from our friends in other Northern Chambers and thank The Pas Chamber for highlighting this message. After countless meetings, calls and conversations over the past months, and with our connections through both the Chamber network and government, we have repeatedly expressed our concerns over the broad use of restrictions for the entire Northern Region in Code Red when the situation in separate communities can vary greatly. The latest decision from the government has shown that, to date, they have not been listening to the voices from our Chambers and communities.

There's Music on Mainstreet!   In December 2020,  The Chamber was excited to start piping Christmas music along Main Street.  The project, while not yet complete, has placed speakers over 2/3 of the street and now has the ability to play music continuously for the shoppers on Main Street.  CFAR has generously stepped-up to maintain the system and content at their own expense.  Donations were gratefully accepted from Hudbay Minerals, City of Flin Flon, Town of Creighton, along with personal donations from Dona & Karen O'Brien as a legacy to their father, Doug O'Brien.  Special thanks to Dianne Russell who single-handedly managed and oversaw this project from inception to reality.  The Chamber hopes everyone will enjoy the music!
