Several weeks ago, we surveyed industry on the impacts of the March 31 public orders and received close to 900 responses. Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the survey. Your feedback was directly used in our conversations with government about the devastating impacts of banning indoor dining.
Because of your feedback, ABLE BC and our industry partners successfully advocated for the new Circuit Breaker Relief Grant. In response to your concerns, we also hosted an info session on the BC Small and Medium Sized Business Recovery Grant to help clear up confusion on the application process.
We are asking for your urgent feedback again.
As you know, the public orders prohibiting indoor dining have been extended until after the May long weekend.
Our industry associations understand extending the ban on indoor dining is incredibly frustrating. We also know this order comes with catastrophic financial consequences for our industry.
Please take 3-5 minutes to complete our new survey for BC’s hospitality industry.
We want to know how extending the orders will impact your business and if you have accessed any provincial grants. ABLE BC and our industry partners will be meeting with government in the coming days to discuss the impacts of these restrictions and request additional urgent financial support for our industry.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact ABLE BC: firstname.lastname@example.org.
