COVID-19 Business Support Services

As British Columbia moves through the four phases of our Provincial Restart Plan, businesses are tackling the challenges involved in adapting to the “new normal” of operating during a pandemic.

Whether your business is getting ready to reopen or you’re pivoting operations to service the new COVID economy, you don’t need to face these challenges alone. The Sidney BIA is here to help. We’ve got the tools and resources you need to weather these unprecedented times and maybe even identify some potential areas for growth.

For COVID-19 business support, please contact Shannon Toogood, Business Development Manager, Sidney BIA, at shannon@sidneybia.ca.
