*** Thank You *** 5-Year Plan *** Get-Together *** Grant & Loan Opps *** Congrats, Dairy Daughter! *** Special Anniversary? *** Welcome, New Member ***
On behalf of the Chamber, thank you for staying at home, and for your continued cooperation in wearing a mask and sanitizing your hands when going outside for necessities. The provincial cases are down, and we are encouraged that we’ll beat COVID-19.
The Chamber Board will soon be approving an initial draft for a 5-year strategic plan.
To make our business plan fully sustainable, we must ensure we maintain our 2020 membership and greatly increase our membership in 2021. We look forward to your help and your participation in the Chamber this year.
We’re getting together! Well, online, at least! Members should watch their email in coming weeks for invitations to the Chamber’s first online networking sessions of the year. Stay tuned for details.
GRANT & LOAN OPPS
Financial support loans and grants all have deadlines, so please, don’t hesitate to seek assistance if you need it. The County, the Municipality’s Economic Development department, and the SEDC are all available to listen to you about your business and its challenges and help guide you toward loans and grants available to you.
The SEDC offers not only financial assistance but information in the following areas: federal and provincial government programs, regional demographics for marketing research, business planning consultation, business training seminars and workshops, as well as regional and local government information. The SEDC is who you work with to apply for the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund.
