We, the members of the Welland/Pelham Chamber of Commerce, celebrate each other’s independence, differences and diversity. We recognize the inherent ability of each member of our community to contribute their best and reach their finest. As such, we state and applaud all members and citizens of Welland and Pelham who exemplify the following characteristics:
- Respect of the individual, to listen, hear and accept all opinions whether or not we agree on principle
- Pride in our community’s diversity and willingness to strengthen our neighbour’s enterprise
- Strength in our common goal of creating a community celebrating our past and sustaining our future
We see this as an opportunity for us to recommit to ourselves, each other and our community and challenge each member and citizen of Welland and Pelham to embrace these concepts and put them into practice in our daily lives with our colleagues, families, friends and neighbours.
