Update from the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce- October 28, 2020
What You Need to Know This Week
Your local Chamber had another busy Small Business Week!

In a nutshell, we:
  • Visited 74 Chamber members to hand out candy bags and catch up
  • Held a Zoom meeting with local businesses and the Drumheller Resiliency & Flood Mitigation Office to discuss the draft Municipal Development Plan & Land Use Bylaw. You can view the recording from that meeting here.
  • Held our 9th annual Women in Business Mixer virtually.

Good news- the Canada United Small Business Relief Fund has received a $12 million investment from the Government of Canada, and has reopened.

This is a grant, not a loan, and you can find out more and apply here.
