What is the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce Research Campaign?
The Research Campaign is one of several avenues that the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce utilizes when projects arise that require a high degree of specialized knowledge. Research Campaigns pool the financial resources of private businesses and industry associations across Saskatchewan to research, report on and advocate solutions for issues important to the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce membership. Routine projects will continue to be addressed by the Chamber's traditional research methods.
