Affinity

LEVELING THE PLAYING FIELD FOR OUR MEMBERS

The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce recognize the importance of cost-saving measures to “level the playing field” among businesses. The MCC Affinity programs do just that. Affinity Programs (money saving discount programs made available only to chamber of commerce members) are negotiated on behalf of local Chambers of Commerce in Manitoba. The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce negotiates these programs to reduce the members’ cost of doing business and to assist in making businesses more competitive.

Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan

Whether you’re a solo entrepreneur, running a home-based business, or part of a larger firm, benefits are a very important part of your financial security. The Chambers Plan creates a solid foundation for that security, based on a benefit program that can be designed to suit organizations of any size.

You’ll get the flexibility and security you need, along with a benefits program that’s personalized for you and your company. You’ll also get rate stability, guaranteed coverage, exceptional customer service, and additional advantages not offered anywhere else.

Bonus features: NO minimum firm size, NO industry restrictions, YOU choose the coverage, YOU control the cost! Your Chambers Plan offers more than just financial support. You’ll also have access to travel medical insurance (included in all Health Care Options,) Best Doctors® services, and discounts on eyewear, laser eye surgery and hearing devices.

See why more than 30,000 business owners have selected this plan.

At First Data Canada, we look for every opportunity to help customers leverage more value from each transaction — developing new solutions to make them simpler, faster, safer, and more rewarding.

If you’re looking for a reason to move your payment processing to First Data, this could be it! First Data knows that there are a lot of offers out in the marketplace. Sales reps will often walk in the door with an appealing “flash rate” — the first thing that businesses see about any program but not always the most accurate indicator of savings.

First Data Canada offers merchants a wide selection of devices and payment options, so you never have to say “no” to a customer’s preferred payment method. Plus, the Chamber has negotiated market-leading rates for our services, which are not open to seasonal price adjustments. For more information, please click here.

If you have questions on the First Data offer or require additional information on this Affinity Program to help your business be more competitive, contact Mohamed-Ali Kessentini at 905-602-3548 or visit www.firstdata.com.

Choice Hotels

15% member discount on stays at any Choice Hotel, 300 locations in Canada and 6,000 locations worldwide. The hotel brands include many comfortable choices. Unlike many other hotel discount programs members can use the discount for both business and leisure travel. Members will be able to offer it to their staff if they own businesses and family to use as well as long as they book using the MCC Client ID that is required in order for the discount to apply. As an additional feature, members who are looking to book over 10 rooms at a time for a period of 3 days or more can contact the program administrator for a group rate that could potentially be a larger savings than their Client ID can provide.
