Community Futures Tips for Reopening
A wonderful resource built by Community Futures for all businesses affected by the pandemic. A checklist of items that your business should consider when looking to reopen. 

Canadian Chamber of Commerce has developed a Canadian Business Resilience Network where you’ll find the latest information, tools and resources businesses need to make it through the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In the middle of a once-in-a-century pandemic, it is difficult for Canadians, their families, businesses, and governments to look beyond confronting the immediate effects of COVID-19. However, even as Canadians continue supporting each other today, we must also begin looking over the horizon to the post-COVID-19 world to start planning how our country and economy can emerge stronger. Click here to read the Chamber's document now, featuring 51 recommendations to government.

Facebook Group - Parkland Area Business Updates

This originated as a place where business could share their news during the initial stages of the COVID pandemic. Now we've shifted this group to a general location where businesses can feel free to share their deals, news, updates, wins, employees of the month... whatever that needs to be highlighted. This will be open to all businesses and not just chamber members. Treat this page with respect please.

EVERYONE is welcome to join and get updated information on what local businesses are doing. Feel free to ask questions too so businesses can help.
BUSINESSES - When making a post to this page, please include the "topic" to your post so it can be categorized by communities. This makes finding information later on much easier. Also keep an eye on comments and questions so you can help your customers or make a new fan.
