It is heartening to see so many businesses and organizations taking the necessary action to slow the spread of COVID-19. We also appreciate it comes with a cost, especially for small business owners, freelancers, precarious workers and employees.
We need each other to thrive.
The good news is there are regular announcements being made about help for people and businesses and there are grassroots-efforts popping across communities.
The reality is that not all of it is easy to understand, especially as governents figure out how these efforts will work. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible to find what you need.
We will be compiling a list of supports, communities and programs to help those impacted by measures taken in response to the pandemic on a dedicated website to tighten the net of support emerging from many levels of government, from businesses, from organizations and from the community.
