Chamber Message – Covid-19
We recognize the challenges that lay before our business members and community.
Here at the Chamber, we continue to work with an ever-growing number of public stakeholder organizations, including the BC Chamber and Canadian Chamber, to advocate for accessible business supports. Business supports for today, and equally important, business supports in the rebuild phase when that time commences.
In addition, we are collaborating information and resources under one central website location to provide you with a one-stop shop for business, personal and community resources. Please click on the link or image below for the most current updates and support resources. We also encourage you to sign up for the Covid-19 Update E-Newsletter to receive further information on a timely basis.
In support of social distancing and the critical need to flatten the curve of transmission, our Executive Director is working primarily from her home office and we have closed our Visitor Centre / Chamber office doors to the general public until such time as we are advised it is safe to do otherwise. Please be assured, the Chamber continues to be operational and we are working on your behalf every day. We invite you to contact us at 250 832-6247 (office number), 250 515-1868 (mobile number) or firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how we can further assist you.
2020 Membership (Renewals & New Members) – Special Offer
We recognize the extreme challenges that currently confront you as a business owner.
Recently, Prime Minister Trudeau publicly acknowledged the Canadian Chamber of Commerce as an integral partner with government; we see that same Chamber relationship also recognized at the provincial level. As a member of the BC and Canadian Chambers we can access information, and provide input to numerous conversations with government outlining the discrepancies and the needs for funding supports which help businesses to evolve and innovate in spite of this pandemic.
Here at the local Chamber level, we are working as part of the Salmon Arm/Shuswap Covid-19 Task Force, with an ever-growing number of public stakeholder organizations within Salmon Arm and the Shuswap region. We want to ensure that you have complete access to the most current information on supports and resources available during these unprecedented times.
