Employers and Businesses
This is a difficult time for businesses and employers. The requirement for the public to socially distance means that storefronts are seeing fewer patrons, and other businesses are experiencing a significant decline in requests for their products and services. While some businesses are able to retool and adapt to the changing market, others are left with their hands tied - laying off staff.
In order to assist our local business community, we have compiled a list of services being provided by the provincial and federal governments in support of economic sustainability.
