Just a few minutes of your time will help shape the public policies needed to facilitate Canada’s COVID-19 recovery efforts. Survey expires Friday, April 17th. Please consider adding your voice.

This next Survey is done in collaboration with the BC Business Community and will be shared with the Provincial Government. Clearly we need to communicate with all levels of Government throughout the crisis and into the recovery era.

An interesting Blog in this weeks' 5 Minutes for Business published by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. Some excerpts from the blog:

"Until a vaccine is developed, the price of Canadian oil, like oil everywhere, will remain hostage to a pathogen."

"Market share will increasingly be up for grabs given that current estimates suggest nearly 100 U.S. shale producers are likely to file for Chapter 11 in the months ahead."

"Perhaps most importantly, Canada’s energy producers have the vision to further reduce emissions, some before this crisis could see a path to net-zero by 2050. Realizing this vision demands new infrastructure projects and investment."

Applications open for temporary rental supplement
Renters who are experiencing a loss of income during the COVID-19 pandemic can now apply for the Province’s new temporary rental supplement.
“This crisis is putting pressure on people across B.C. We’re helping British Columbians get through this by halting evictions so renters will not lose their home. We’re helping them pay rent with the new temporary rental supplement – providing direct relief on the biggest month-to-month expense for most households,” said Selina Robinson, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “Together with the other provincial and federal programs, the rental supplement will give people the financial support they need right now.”

  • an extension to the end date for employment to February 28, 2021
  • allowing employers to adapt their projects and job activities to support essential services
  • allowing employers to hire staff on a part-time basis
