March 27 – New Business Supports

The government of Canada is making some major announcements for small and medium sized businesses, including business support loans, employee payroll supports, and GST/HST payment deferral to June.

Visits to canada.ca website for more details. Here is a direct link to the COVID-19 supports for businesses and employees: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/businesses-employees.html

Also view our COVID-19 and business page for more links and details, as well as a regularly updated list of Vanderhoof businesses that are open/closed/reduced hours/special instructions etc.

And here is a great infographic shared to use from our friends at Community Futures Nechako and Nicola Valley, on how to continue to support our local businesses even if they have had to close their doors to walk-in customers.
