Welcome to summer! We are absolutely thrilled that businesses are in the reopening stages.
Dufferin Board of Trade stands behind the recent OCC policy brief citing "Ontario government must develop policies to bridge gaps for entrepreneurs who will be in greatest need of support as they rebuild and grow in a post-pandemic world. " To read the report, click here.
We are encouraged with the vaccination numbers and dropping case counts in our area that businesses will be able to fully resume operations very soon.
Precautions are still necessary so it’s the perfect time to increase consumer confidence by using our FREE Covid 19 Rapid Testing Kits for your business. These quick 15 min. tests can be used twice a week for employees to make sure there are no asymptomatic Covid carriers in your workplace. Display your "tested" badge to let consumers know you are regularly testing your staff to help keep your customers and community safe.
We are happy to announce the opening of our Biz Hub Outdoor meeting space. We have a new 10x20 tent available for meetings, subject the provincial Covid capacity guidelines.
The Play Local Golf Tournament is scheduled for August 19/21 and Think Local Market Sept 14/21.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon.
Liz Skorski, Chair, Dufferin Board of Trade
