The Battle River Economic Opportunities Committee (BREOC) recognizes that our business community requires our support now more than ever, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the nature and magnitude of the challenges occurring to virtually all businesses, their employees, and their customers; governments at all levels are putting in place special measures to help contain the spread of COVID – 19. Many of these measures directly impact businesses and their employees.
As a first step, BREOC is working to ensure that our business community has access to quality information pertaining to COVID – 19, as we are committed to doing our part to support the business community during these unprecedented times. These first steps will include providing direct links to federal, provincial, and in some cases, municipal government sites that are focused on issues directly related to COVID – 19 and the challenges businesses may be facing.
In addition, you will also find resources for a number of business support organizations whom are developing tools that are focused on COVID – 19, that will support the efforts of the business community throughout these hardships.
For a list of businesses in the BREOC Region that are open and/or have made adjustments to their service delivery, please check the list by clicking the Essential Services List button. For a complete list of COVID-19 resources available, please click the Resource Inventory button.
As the province is looking to “relaunch”, the Government of Alberta has put together their Relaunch strategy, which is supplemented with the Alberta Biz Connect and Alberta Health Services (AHS) resources for information for businesses on how to safely relaunch their business operations.
It is clear that the circumstances are continually evolving, therefore we will work to do our best to ensure that the information associated with COVID–19 and its impacts on Canada will be kept as up to date as possible.
