The Columbia Valley Chamber of Commerce is here to support you at this challenging time. We are proud to share that there is an aligned communication approach from many key organizations in our region. These include representatives from chambers, provincial/local governments, and tourism, social services and community groups. This communication is available to everyone and we encourage you to sign up to our email newsletter via our website, www.cvchamber.ca. We are also continually updating our website so you have the most current and reliable information.
While things are changing daily, sometimes hourly, here are some key updates:
• If you need assistance or you can offer assistance, please visit www.volunteercv.ca.
• Please be respectful and appreciative of the directions given by your local essential services, such as grocery stores and medical professionals. By doing your part you will allow them the ability to continue to support our community.
• At the time of writing, there is currently a gap for those needing public technology access to apply for support programs such as EI. So if you are ramping down your operations and you are able to allow your employees access to a computer, that would be incredibly helpful to give them the support they may need.
If there is anything we can assist you with please don’t hesitate to call 250-342-2844 (from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days per week) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This community is resilient and has proven time and time again that we are here for each other. This time in our history is no different, and when working together we will come through this. Stay healthy and happy.
