Your team at the Clarington Board of Trade and Office of Economic Development continues to work with key
policy initiatives to ensure effective infrastructure, projects and policies continue to move forward
to enhance the business climate in our community.
We are looking for your help. The key stakeholders know that the Board of Trade has a voice and that our
voice is representative of the Clarington business community. We want them to hear many voices and
therefore through this new series we are hoping to have you lend your voice through letters,
emails or whatever means you have to send an independent voice from businesses
to help demonstrate engagement and support from the private sector.
YOUR VOICE MATTERS..... HELP US RAISE IT!
If there are other topics you would like us to share in this format please feel free to send them

TODAY'S TOPIC: TRANSPORTATION
GO Train Extension East to Bowmanville
There has been a great deal of work done over the past year or two to lobby our provincial leaders to encourage the
GO Train Extension East to Bowmanville. These efforts are being coordinated through a collaborative
effort between our public leaders and private sector.
Over the course of the past couple of months, the Province of Ontario has heard a very clear message that the
extension of the GO Train to Bowmanville matters not only to this community but to our neighbours, residents and business communities.
We have engaged with Metrolinx, the Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Finance in their pre-budget consultations,
where the message was clear from many stakeholders that this project is crucial.
We would like to encourage you, our business leaders, that support this project to write to the Minister of Transportation,
the Honourable Steven Del Duca to share why this project matters to you.
We have posted our letter and key messaging for you to use as a reference.
