Advocacy Campaign Asking GOA for Safe Reopening Plan
The Airdrie Chamber continues to advocate to the Government of Alberta asking for answers on when all small businesses will be able to reopen safely during such uncertain times.

Our "face of business" video will be shared with the GOA and on social media platforms along with an advocacy letter campaign. Please sign the following advocacy letter, or if you prefer, send your own letter to by Monday, February 1st.
COVID-19 Updates and Support
Mandatory, province-wide restrictions remain in effect. Continue to follow public health restrictions to protect others as well as the health-care system. Active case numbers are decreasing, but hospitalizations remain high. More information.

Alberta’s government expanded its relaunch grant to ensure new businesses have access to the supports they need. New Alberta businesses impacted by public health orders will need to demonstrate a 30 percent reduction of revenue using revenue figures from November or December 2020 compared with any prior month between March to October 2020. The payment is 15 percent of their monthly revenue, for a maximum of $15,000 in funding available for each business. Read more.
All Albertans, businesses, organizations and service providers must continue to follow all other existing health measures, ensuring the safety of Albertans, while balancing the uncertainty faced by Alberta businesses and service providers. Read more.
Canadians will begin receiving T4A slips from the CRA for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit, Canada Emergency Student Benefit, Canada Recovery Benefit, Canada Recovery Sickness Benefit and the Canada Recovery Caregiving Benefit to support their tax filing. The T4A is virtually identical to the T4 slips Canadians are used to receiving from their employers, but rather than employment income, they provide the amounts of COVID-19 benefits received from the CRA in 2020. If you have questions about the slip, including if you think there may be a mistake or have received it in error, please contact the CRA by phone at 1-800-959-8281.

Small and Micro Business Space Available
Located at #2109 – 109 Gateway Drive (neighboring their current 28 Gateway space), is offering a unique rental model to help support their tenants. Instead of the typical triple net rent upon which most commercial leases are based they operate on a fixed gross rental model. As a tenant there are no surprises when it comes to what your monthly bills will be. They offer a fixed rent rate which includes all utilities, repairs, maintenance, cleaning of common areas, property taxes, etc. You are simply required to pay for your rent, insurance as a tenant and your own internet.This simple model allows for easier budgeting and cash management for our tenants. 
See below proposed layout for the space; however, they will be using DIRTT demountable wall systems, which allows to customize the space for their tenants at the time of occupancy. Their current designed layout shows office spaces ranging from 110 square feet to 200 square feet in space. Their tenants have the ability to combine 1, 2 or as many offices as they need to make the space fit their needs. The second floor is completely open and encompasses almost 800 square feet of fully customizable space. Rates range based upon the actual office size and term of the agreement.
The 2109 project includes shared washrooms and kitchenette spaces and is prepped for the installation of a washer and dryer should a tenant require those services. Ideal tenants for this space would include professional services offices. It's a great shared space for anyone wanting to get out of their home and make the move to a professional business setting. If you have any questions please feel free to call Ryan. He would really appreciate the opportunity to talk about this exciting project further.
