The land that gets the first rays of the sun, the eastern-most province of Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador is home to people from all across the globe. It has a relatively small population when compared to the other provinces and its own land area. However, Newfoundland and Labrador are famous for their many beautiful gifts of nature. It is truly a place of juxtapositions – from mighty whales to magnificent icebergs and from stunning coastlines to modern culture, everything majestic and unbelievable.
The Atlantic Provinces Chamber of Commerce
The Maritime Board of Trade that was established in 1896 became the Atlantic Provinces Chamber of Commerce when Newfoundland and Labrador’s respective chamber joined it in 1974. The official website states that APCC “actively partners with members and other organizations to impact a strong, vibrant and growing Atlantic Canada. It is a catalyst to influence, educate and advocate on policy-related issues that support business, to deliver high-value services and opportunities to our members, and to support and promote initiatives that contribute to sustainable economic growth in the region.” APCC is an advocate for over 16,000 businesses of different scales and sizes and works tirelessly in representing them to the higher-ups in the province.
