Quesnel-area businesses asked to share impacts of COVID-19 in new survey

Community Futures North Cariboo is urging local businesses to have their say by 6 p.m. PST March 18

Community Futures North Cariboo is urging local businesses to share how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting them in a time-sensitive survey.

“In recent days we’ve all been consumed with news on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it’s affecting our health, our families, our small businesses and our communities across the province,” according to an email from Community Futures North Cariboo. “During this time, it’s critical that we understand the economic impacts you anticipate in the weeks and months ahead and how government and related agencies can support B.C. businesses to ensure they stay viable.”

Community Futures has partnered with Small Business BC, the BC Chamber of Commerce and the BC Economic Development Association to create a short survey for big and small businesses alike throughout the province.

The survey takes less than four minutes to complete, and Community Futures says all feedback received will go to various levels of government to help them shape their response to the crisis.

The survey closes Wednesday, March 18 at 6 p.m. PST.
