At the April 27 Council Meeting, Council approved a 50% rebate on business license fees for resident businesses for 2020. The rebate proposal was presented by the Mayor’s Task Force on COVID-19 – Economic Stream. The Economic Stream was established to examine ways to support local businesses and entrepreneurs facing challenges brought on by COVID-19.
The business license rebate will not be automatic and will have to be applied for. As with other financial support programs in response to COVID-19, it is expected that only businesses in need will apply for this support. If you think you're an eligible resident business, please apply as soon as possible.
