YYC Creates Business Sector Support Taskforce

The City of Calgary has created a Business Sector Support Taskforce in order to respond to the current Covid-19 environment in Calgary.  This Taskforce is comprised of numerous stakeholders representing various business industries, and is assisted by the City Manager’s Office and the Calgary Emergency Management Agency (CEMA).  The overall purpose of the Business Sector Support Taskforce is to monitor, evaluate and manage sustainability and wellness throughout the business community as we weather this storm collectively.  As new information is released from the different levels of government, communication via a centralized information hub for businesses can be found at Calgary.ca/covid-business. Additionally, the Taskforce will communicate business stakeholder challenges, and financial options for support. 

We encourage assistance in communicating the centralized information hub website to business owners, this will reduce their time needed to search several sites to find important and helpful information.  The Covid-Business website will be updated on a daily basis. 

Business Sector Support Taskforce Chair: Sonya Sharp, Leader of Business & Local Economy (City of Calgary)
Taskforce Liaison: Councillor Ward Sutherland
Taskforce Council Members : Councillors Jyoti Gondek & Peter Demong
