In support of your reopening efforts, we invite you to join us for the following Chamber Live webinar on creating your operational plan:

Today, May 11, the federal government announced additional supports for businesses:

  • Establish a Large Employer Emergency Financing Facility (LEEFF) to provide bridge financing to Canada’s largest employers, whose needs during the pandemic are not being met through conventional financing.
  • Expand the Business Credit Availability Program (BCAP) to mid-sized companies with larger financing needs.
  • Continue to provide financing to businesses through Farm Credit Canada, the BDC, and EDC, including through the Canada Account.

On Sunday, May 10, the Chamber was featured on CBC PEI regarding the potential reopening of restaurants. Read the story here.

We will continue to share relevant information as it becomes available. Please reach out at any time with your questions, comments, or possible concerns.
