In recent days we’ve all been consumed with news on the COVID-19 pandemic, and how it’s affecting our health, our families, our small businesses and our communities across the province.
During this time, it is critical that we understand the economic impacts you anticipate in the weeks and months ahead, and how government and related agencies can support the Nicola Valley businesses to ensure they stay viable. As a result, Community Futures Nicola Valley in partnership with the City of Merritt and the Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce conducted the COVID-19 Impact Business Survey to determine how our local business have been affected.
Community Futures has prepared the following summary report for you.
These insights have been shared with the City of Merritt, the Merritt & District Chamber of Commerce and the local business community.
Thanks again for your support and assistance with this important data collection initiative - we greatly appreciate it!
