Greetings!

We are pleased to have compiled the results of the 2021 Business Issue Survey. This is a key indicator of business outlook in our community and it helps us grow and change our offerings based on the results. A key take away from this survey is that our businesses were hit hard by Covid but are resilient and are reinventing themselves. We must keep optimistic.
 
Show some love for local. I know you've heard it before but the livelihood of our local businesses depends on our willingness to go out of the way to find ways to work with local businesses during COVID lockdown. Whether it be purchasing online, pickup, appointments instead of walk or gift cards for future use. If you have a favourite business in Dufferin, show them some love.

Sincerely
 
Liz Skorski
Chair - Dufferin Board of Trade
Community Collaboration Grant

We have received a grant to reduce the cost of the advertising bundles for 12 local businesses!

Save time, save money, promote your business and encourage local spending

DBOT has partnered with several local media outlets to create advertising bundles that allow you to affordably promote your brand across various channels! And, for 12 local businesses, DBOT has received a grant to reduce the package prices by up to $200.

Connect with us asap if you'd like a spot - 6 of the 12 spots are already taken!
Advertise on myFM - Orangeville, Country 105, Snapd Dufferin, the DBOT e-newsletter, social media platforms, and our website. Get your business name out there at a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the time and effort of doing it all yourself! All while encouraging consumers to Think Local, Think Dufferin!

Discounts are available thanks to a Community Collaboration Grant from Innovation Guelph. Support from the grant funds is available on a first come, first served basis.
