Chamber Member Connections - Mid-March 2020
Connecting Business. Creating Opportunity.
Dear Valued Members, Partners and Stakeholders,

Currently, the practice of social distancing has proven to be the most effective means to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. For the safety of our guests, our team and the public, we have postponed all events, ribbon cuttings and milestone visits until at least 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 remotely. 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.

You can bookmark and follow this link for the federal support plan for Canadians and businesses.

The Canadian Chamber of Commerce has been creating and compiling valuable resources that you can utilize. You can find the information here:  CCC Pandemic Preparedness for Business.

You are also encouraged to follow the Alberta Chambers of Commerce for business information http://www.abchamber.ca/

For questions about your Chamber Insurance Plan, please contact Jamie Nadon, Chamber Services Specialist with Canwest Group Benefit Consultants, email Jamie@canwestgroup.com or phone 780-357-9313 ext. 101.

Please reach out to us at any time and let us know what we can do to try to assist you as we work to support each other in these challenging and uncertain times. We plan to make this Connections newsletter weekly until a new normal is reached. We welcome your submissions to let your fellow members and the community know your activities. You are also invited to share on our social media pages on facebook, twitter and linkedin.

Above all, stay well.

Your truly,

Tanya Oliver
