Colwood hosts pandemic recovery roundtable discussion

Attendees must RSVP for virtual meeting on May 29 from 1 to 3 p.m.

What are the impacts of COVID-19 on your business?

This is one of the questions Colwood will focus on during a virtual roundtable discussion on Friday, May 29 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Colwood’s business leaders are being asked to give their two cents on how to recover the municipal, provincial and federal economies amid the pandemic. In turn, the meeting will explore how different levels of government can help local businesses cope during uncertain times.

MP for Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke Randall Garrison and MLA for Esquimalt-Metchosin Mitzi Dean will attend the event that has a cap of 20 business representatives.

Those who hold a Colwood business licence or own a commercial property in Colwood and are interested in attending can RSVP to nbrooks@colwood.ca.
