COMOX VALLEY - The Comox Valley Chamber recently sent a delegation to the BC Chamber AGM in Victoria where we tabled a policy recommending that the provincial government incorporate robotics classes as credit courses and as part of the curriculum at the elementary and secondary level. As well as increase and maintain education funding for automation, information studies, robotics, mechatronics, and related subjects for public schools to ensure the BC economy remains competitive in an ever changing technological economic environment.

Chamber policy development reflects BC and The Comox Valley’s broad-based membership. Each year, as a whole, over 40 policy recommendations are brought forth and endorsed at the BC Chamber AGM. The Comox Valley Chamber is proud to take part in this essential policy development.
