Hello all,

We have published our third edition of the Can't work IN Your Business, Work ON Your Business series. Topics include ways to streamline your business along with online training opportunities to up your skills as an entrepreneur .

In addition, Digital Mainstreet is an initiative designed to increase local business' online presence, provide resources and increase capacity for digital marketing. It used to be that businesses in our area could not access this program, as we did not have a representative in our area.

WELL, THANKS TO COVID , all of these resources have been made digital . They have tons of relevant information to help you get your business performing online. For example, tonight, I am taking Small Business Websites 101 at 6 PM.

Below this message, you can find an update from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce , and messages from each of our local media partners.

From high-quality news delivery, to free business listings and advertising support, the media organizations of Haliburton County remain available and committed to serving our community, businesses and organizations. We are so grateful for them.

One other thought, for those of you that are essential workplaces - here is a template from the OHBA . It covers enhanced sanitation procedures and more. Also, a reminder that Peninsula is putting on free Crisis Management, HR and employment law webinars twice per week.

We will be announcing a few exciting things in a special edition of our newsletter tomorrow. Stay tuned!

I will close by wishing you and your loved ones all the best, I hope to talk with you soon.
