What you need to know about COVID-19: October 23, 2020
In an effort to help business owners map out a plan for recovery in the face of an ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the St. John's Board of Trade has launched a new online toolkit.
Billed at the Main Street Recovery project, the new initiative offers businesses information on six main areas of focus — employee safety, mental health, talent and recruitment, marketing, supply chain development and support for building online platforms. Each subsection includes links to information resources, videos and upcoming virtual events.
“The Main Street Recovery toolkit is intended to be a one-stop hub of information for business owners in the wake of COVID-19,” said the board's CEO AnnMarie Boudreau in a news release issued earlier this week. “We recognize that businesses are working through a lot right now, and this toolkit provides them with access to tangible and practical information that they can use as they recover.”
The project received financial support from the federal and provincial governments. The former kicked in $75,000 through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, while the province added $25,000.
