Through a partnership with the Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce (CECC), we offer a variety of resources in the form of Quick Guides to our members.

Additional guides may be available for various topics, please email If there is a specific area of interest for you and we will send this directly to you if we have it in our files.

If you need further assistance with putting these resources into effect, or with other employment or business issues, South Canterbury members can phone the Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce on 0800 50 50 96 to access free advice. Also note that as these documents are produced by CECC, the training events listed are not always available in South Canterbury. To see our latest training offerings check the Business Training Calendar.
