At CWCC, we are here to help local businesses thrive. Everything we do aims to provide access to information, connections, resources, and programs that can help our member businesses & organizations, and the Centre Wellington business community. 

There are several programs, events, and resources that we want to make sure everyone is aware of:

  • All Candidates Debate - we are co-hosting with the Halton Hills Chamber of Commerce a virtual, business-focused, All Candidates Debate on September 9, in preparation for the federal election.  All candidates for the Wellington Halton Hills riding have been invited to attend. To register, click here
  • Rapid Screening Program – as restrictions ease and we continue to re-open, return to the office, etc, access to self-screening kits and a screening program for your employees may be valuable. Screening kits are available through CWCC, free of charge to businesses with less than 150 employees. For the details, click here
  • In Spring 2021, we hosted virtual Google My Business workshops. In partnership with the Township of Centre Wellington’s Economic Development taskforce and with funding from the County of Wellington, we were able to subsidize the registration costs, and are now able to make the recordings available free of charge to all businesses across the County of Wellington. These workshops are hands-on, with the Beginner workshop working you through creating a basic Google My Business listing from scratch specific to your industry and product offerings, and the Advanced workshop taking you to the next level of leveraging advanced Google My Business features. Check out and view the workshop resources here.
  • For any business considering, or in the process of creating, their own independent proof of immunization program there are several resources currently available – a Vax-Pass Tenets document from the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, and strategies and guidelines from Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health. 
  • We are returning, carefully and slowly, to in-person events, and are excited to be hosting the Paul Walker Memorial Golf Tournament on September 23. For registration and all the latest event updates, visit

As part of our regular content here on EloraFergusToday, we are excited to be sharing Member Profiles. If you’d like to be featured here, email [email protected]. 

MEMBER PROFILE: Maggie DiStasi, Professional Certified Coach (PPC)

Maggie DiStasi is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) with over twelve years specializing in leadership development, career development for leaders, and coaching skills training. Prior to starting her coaching business, Maggie built a successful first career in finance, and held the role of Vice President, Technology in the Capital Markets division of a major Canadian bank. Through mindfulness-based coaching, Maggie helps people develop leadership skills and career opportunities – typically working with mid- and senior level leaders that may need support around taking on a new role and/or leading through complexity and change. This can include creating more collaborative connections with their teams and executives, managing their own energy and reactivity in the moment, and developing the bigger picture thinking required to lead at their level.

As a new Member of the Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce, Maggie has found the Chamber events to be a great source of connection and networking. A past networking success included acting on a hunch and arranging to meet someone for coffee instead of a virtual meeting. This led to a great, mutual conversation which eventually resulted in both organizations doing a lot of good work together. This is Maggie’s favourite way of collaborating with business leaders to create great things for everyone. “You can't force these things to happen but I'm fully prepared to act on more hunches and meet some amazing people to collaborate and co-create with,” says Maggie.

In addition to being a Member of the CWCC, Maggie is also a Member of the Centre Wellington Rotary Club which is currently supporting the Groves Hospital Foundation (and lots of local businesses) through their "Grand Taste" coupon booklet offering through various fundraisers.

You can connect with Maggie on LinkedIn for more information.
