Dear Valued Members, Partners and Stakeholders,
While the current risk to Albertans posed by COVID-19 remains low, we have seen several measures put in place to help protect our families, colleagues, friends and our communities.
Currently, the practice of social distancing has proven to be the most effective means to contain the spread of the virus. For the safety of our guest, our team and the public, we have postponed all events, ribbon cuttings and milestone visits until the end of April. With the situation rapidly evolving, we will continue to monitor and make decisions as we have more information.
Our physical office location at Centre 2000 is closed to the public and we have measures in place for our team to work from home. The Grande Prairie & District Chamber of Commerce will continue to do the great work you have come to expect from us and are all still available via phone and email.
We are working with our partners at the Alberta Chambers of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce to ensure the voice of business is heard at all levels of government. We have been working to find ways to mitigate the risks businesses are facing as a result of the current situation.
We will keep you informed with the latest updates from the governments as program specifics are rolled out over the coming days and weeks.
As we all settle into a new normal of conducting business, we are having to consider and plan during an unprecedented time in our history. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce has been creating and compiling valuable resources that you can utilize during your planning. You can find the information here:
