The Halifax Chamber of Commerce is the oldest business institution in North America with over 280 years of history. We are proud that Cynthia Dorrington is in this role. She has demonstrated leadership skills, served on several boards and is a savvy businesswoman both nationally and internationally. A phenomenal woman who shares some unique similarities to Viola Desmond. They have placed New Glasgow on the international stage this year. Cynthia is a great example for women of colour and women generally.
