A strong partnership can make a world of difference. For nearly 20 years, the Mayor’s Night at the Movies has been an example of what a strong partnership can accomplish and has become a popular and rewarding fundraiser that has assisted a variety of organizations by giving the public the opportunity to enjoy some great films. Last year, Langs and the City of Cambridge won the award which Langs’ Executive Director Bill Davidson says has had a great effect.
“It was a substantial boost to the morale of our volunteers and staff,” he says of the win. “It was a vote of confidence that it was a successful partnership and encourages us to collaborate even more.”
Langs’ mission centres on ensuring every person in its neighbourhood is supported in their pursuit to be healthy and well and joining forces with the City in a successful fundraising venture ensures this work will continue.
Davidson says acknowledging this successful partnership with a community award is important.
“It’s a strong message to send any community partner to think about collaboration with the not-for-profit sector,” he says. “It demonstrates the value of working together and it strengthens our community.”

Small Business, Too Big To Ignore
The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) and the Ontario Chamber Network is proud to be a part of the ambitious campaign, Small Business: Too Big To Ignore.
This campaign highlights the important contributions of small businesses to our economy and communities, and seeks to actively engage small businesses across the province in investigating the top barriers to small business growth - and identify solutions to overcome those challenges. To kick off this campaign the OCC has released the report, Top 3 Obstacles to Small Business Success.
The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce looks forward to leading discussions in our community about the underlying challenges that are weighing on small businesses and stifling job creation.
A strong and vibrant small business sector is important for all business. Small businesses are the wealth creators, job creators and risk takers. Small businesses have important relationships with big businesses as part of the economic ecosystem. Big businesses are often highly dependent on small businesses as suppliers, distributors, customers, innovators, and for developing a skilled and experienced workforce to draw from. Small businesses also make up the vast majority of our local membership, our volunteers, and are often the people actively involved in community service.
We want to hear from you. Please engage with us on the Small Business Too Big To Ignore campaign on Facebook and Twitter, share your input, and help spread the message about the importance of small business and why it cannot be ignored.
