Dear Business Owner/Manager,
On behalf of Niagara’s Economic Rapid Response Team, we are asking for your participation in the second and final COVID-19 Business Impact Survey as we work to assess impact of COVID-19 on the local economy and plan for economic recovery.
While the preservation of public health remains a priority for all of us in response to the spread of COVID-19, as we all know the economic impacts and challenges are immense.
In an effort to plan for economic recovery and advocate for programs and resources that will help Niagara businesses through recovery, we require information from Niagara businesses in order to inform and direct our efforts.
Please take a moment to complete this survey before Monday May 25 at 5pm.  The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete, but the information is critical for us to have in order to advocate on your behalf to ensure Niagara business get the supports needed for recovery.
The survey is available here:

Regional Relief and Recovery Fund: COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has already had significant impacts on businesses, workers and communities across the country.

The Government of Canada recognizes this and will be there to support you during and after the crisis. That's why they have created the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF).

Nearly $1B in support to affected businesses and communities

The Fund will help to:

  • mitigate the financial pressure experienced by businesses and organizations to allow them to continue their operations, including paying their employees;
  • support projects by businesses, organizations and communities to prepare now for a successful recovery.
  • provides $213 million in support to southern Ontario SMEs that do not qualify for, or have been declined for, current Government of Canada COVID-19 relief measures.

This initiative is implemented by the six regional development agencies, which are familiar with their regions' economic realities and are often the first point of contact for people at the local level.

*Please Note there are limited funds in this program, it is recommended to apply as soon as possible.
