Supporting local business

March was a month full of change, challenge, and uncertainty. Our world has changed and will continue to change for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, some things have remained the same: Dufferin's spirit of helping one another and our sense of community.

During this time of change, your Board of Trade will continue to be here for you and will continue to work to support business in Dufferin County. Our team is just a phone call or email way.

We would like to introduce you to a few resources we have developed to help you through these challenging times:
