Dear Hotel Community,
Following our recent pulse check, almost 50% of you outlined that you were unsure if you would be able to recall your staff. With this announcement, we hope this subsidy will offer assistance, allowing accommodators to continue employing their staff and reinstate additional team members as occupancy levels rise. Through this, we also remain cognizant of the impacts that CERB has had in recalling employees and the need to action this growing concern.
In addition, it was also announced today that the Canada-U.S. border will remain closed to all non-essential travel until at least August 21st. We will continue to monitor what this means for each of you and action change in order to support your needs.
Finally, BCHA will be offering our second webinar partnering with Fortis BC on optimizing buildings for energy efficiency during and after a pandemic this Thursday, July 16. See below for details and registration information.
