(Tri-Cities) April 3, 2018 – Last week, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce hosted a roundtable discussion with Premier John Horgan, Honourable Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Selina Robinson, Honourable Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, Mike Farnworth, and Parliamentary Secretary of Technology, Rick Glumac to discuss housing and affordability with members of the Tri-Cities Young Professionals.

The officials engaged in a dialogue with professionals to discuss the challenges that young professionals face living and doing business in the Tri-Cities. This access provided attendees from the Tri-Cities Young Professionals program the opportunity to share ideas and voice concerns directly to the key decision makers.

“The Tri-Cities Chamber is proud to have connected our young professionals with the Premier and local MLAs to discuss the challenges they face in today’s market,” says CEO, Michael Hind. “The struggles the next generation face differ greatly from the baby boomers and generation X. The Tri-Cities Young Professionals program is working to bridge the generational communication gap.”
