Business Support Program

Our team will work with impacted businesses to:

  • Understand how you are impacted and how we can support you
  • Plan ways to reduce construction impacts where we can
  • Provide timely updates and share information
  • Build relationships and stay in touch
  • Help promote businesses and improve customer experience during construction (e.g. wayfinding and detour signage, campaigns like #SupportLocalYYC, etc.)

What we’re working on

  • Connect with Beltline and Downtown businesses about utility relocation construction
  • Learn about businesses located near Green Line LRT construction areas and build a Business Registry to allow for direct communication during construction
  • Explore ways to support businesses, including input from the Business Insights Panel

Where did the idea for a Business Support Program come from?

In 2015, City Council directed Administration through a Notice of Motion (NM2015) to consult with the impacted business community to develop a business support program, and report back to the Green Line Committee, prior to construction of the Green Line LRT. 

For the past few years, we have been looking at construction impacts to businesses during similar infrastructure projects. We have been learning from businesses and communities impacted by Green Line’s enabling works projects in Ramsay, Highfield, Ogden and Douglas Glen. We have been testing ideas and working to better understand our stakeholders in preparation for LRT construction so that we can set ourselves up to better support impacted businesses.
